Bath College is running two events as part of Bath Digital festival this year.

 

Digital Futures is an all-day event for young people aged 15 to 19 interested in careers in technology, gaming, media and filmmaking.

 

The event, organised by Bath College’s Futures team, takes place on Friday February 12 from 9am to 4pm.

 

Over 300 pupils from local schools are expected to attend careers talks and masterclasses, including filmmaking and animation workshops.

 

On Monday 15th February Bath College will be hosting a free Games Day with lots of activities to keep children occupied over half-term.

 

Participants aged 10 to 14-years-old are invited to enter the Build Bath in Minecraft Competition from 2pm to 5pm.

 

They will have just 48 hours to build imaginary houses, castles and parks on a custom-built map before judging begins.

 

Prizes will be awarded for the most creative plot, best historic plot, most futuristic plot and the judges’ favourite.

 

Teenagers aged 13 and over will have the chance to play a computer game used by the British Army to train soldiers.

 

Bath College lecturer John Curry develops training games for the MoD and will be running a session between 10.30am and 11.30am.

 

Visitors are also invited to come and meet digital avatar company Bebods and create their own avatar.
