We participate regularly in Schools Fairs, including Teen Tech and the Bucks Skills Show. We co-sponsor Teen Tech Surrey in conjunction with the BBC.
We have also agreed once again to sponsor a prize for the annual hackathon at Reading University on 21st June 2021. It will be named in memory of Anthony Parker, our former chairman, who died unexpectedly on 1st January 2021, at the age of 45. You can read his obituary here.
Projects and competitons
We run an annual ‘Project of the Year’ where students aged 11-19 submit their personal computing projects such as a Smart Phone App or indie game and can be awarded prizes and the opportunity to network with the computing elite of Berkshire to get their foot in the door and possibly find a path to their future career.
We also judge competitions, run student-focussed events such as our Hackathon, link students with volunteer opportunities and support the University of Reading Student BCS chapter.
