As part of the _LAB event we invited budding young photographers to capture creative tech in action while partaking in workshops and activities. Our two competition winners each won a Lenovo tablet. Click below to see some of the fabulous submissions.

Participants in the Creative Tech for Social Impact Hackathon worked together on some incredibly innovative projects; including an app to connect communities, an assistive speech recognition device and a pothole detector and mapper.

Our _GREENTECH event brought together over 80 Key Stage 3 pupils from schools across Basildon to learn about, and get hands-on with, future technologies that will help with the challenge of climate change. Read a blog about the day-long summit.
