BBC Digital Cities – Young Reporter Day

BBC Digital Cities – Young Reporter Day

This event takes place on: Feb 26 at 09:00 in The Campus

BBC Young Reporter is back in Manchester for Digital Cities!

This year the BBCSharpFutures, Discovery Education and Evidential are collaborating to deliver ‘BBC Young Reporter Day’ here at The Sharp Project.

The free event will be taking place on Wednesday 26 February, 9am – 3pm here at The Sharp Project.

The day is aimed at 16 – 18 year olds as the BBC would like to focus more on careers and hopefully provide some guidance about what to do next. The students will take part in a range of workshops led by people working in the industry and learn new personal and professional skills, and experience different elements of working in the media. There will also be a Q & A session with SharpFutures apprentices past and present.

There will be Augmented Reality workshops from The Sharp Project tenants Discovery Education, who inspire educators to go beyond traditional learning with award-winning digital content and professional development. Evidential, who are expert witnesses and pioneers in Electronic Presentation of Evidence, will also be showcasing the latest in their development of virtual reality crime scenes.

Places are limited to 10 young people per group and as per the BBC Child Protection Policy, at least one responsible adult will have to attend and remain with the students

Please note this event is invite only however if you would like to enquire about attending, email youngreporter@bbc.co.uk.
