"Thank you for the encouraging message Katie. I let Antony read it and he was jumping to the ceiling with excitement :) He started creating further comics immediately. He has been doing it for a while now and we have a cabinet full of comics so decided to invest in the tablet to let him use technology for his passion. It is so great when someone (outside of his own family) can encourage him as well :)"
Parent, Tech for Fun
"Hi there, my son really enjoyed today’s session on the Environment and how tech is being used by some of the brand giants that their age-group recognises, so thumbs up on that. My son, albeit only 11, was interested in the jobs section that you ran – I’m a fan of early careers advice and guidance as we are all aware that young people rule out certain occupations early in their life and then trying to un-do that preconception is difficult!"

"I joined virtually last week with my sister, nephews and niece. We loved the session, the kids especially enjoyed it and found Alice from Rolls Royce completely inspirational as she talked about Augmented Reality, Co-Bot’s (collaborative robots), and working with engines, but also how she tries lots of different things in her job and her musical background, what a great role model!"
