VentureJam is a unique opportunity for 40 young people in Scotland!
Young Scot and Glasgow City of Science and Innovation are running a weekend ‘Jam’ that will see teams of young people developing fresh ideas that embrace the digital world to solve real world challenges.
Throughout the Jam you'll have access to a team of inspirational mentors from the world of television, gaming, product design and 3D animation as well as environmental gurus - and Young Scot will be there to guide you through the creative process!
The theme this year is 'The Plastics Innovation Challenge'. With the BBC’s landmark Blue Planet series highlighting the scale of the problem, there has been a global conversation about our broken plastics system and its environmental impact.
At this Year’s VentureJam weekend we're going to give you the tools to develop and design a new idea and you never know - it could change the future of the planet, and change peoples' lives!
Finalists and the over all winning team will get the chance to pitch their ideas to a packed audience at the Curiosity Live event in Glasgow in November and the opportunity to display their ideas at the FKP Scorpio and BBC Studios Blue Planet II Live In Concert at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on March 21st 2019, and to attend the show as special VIP guests!
When: 19th - 21st October 2018.
