Ian Livingston returns to GEEK 2014 to discuss computing education for our nation’s youth. Hack the Future is a digital industry event in Margate on 20th February 2014, which brings together digital visionaries, teachers, and representatives from the creative and cultural sector to look at some of the imperatives raised by the digital age. 

(Children at GEEK 2013 learning about coding) 

Margate-based community interest company Marine Studios is preparing for this year’s GEEK festival: an event providing a learning experience within the fun of a gaming atmosphere. Running from the 21st-23rd February at The Winter Gardens, GEEK may be a celebration of fun and games but with aims to deliver practical skills to be used in real life situations, through talks and workshops from expert guests.

In addition to the GEEK festival, Margate will be hosting two major events that hope to significantly impact the future of our technologically minded children.

Firstly, GEEK is hosting EPIK’s half-term maker party finale. EPIK is a company encouraging programming in Kent, and they will run one of their coding hubs, 17th and 18th February in the Winter Gardens as well as other locations across Kent. Their aim is to teach coding to children, one way they do this is through the game MineCraft.

Secondly, Hack the Future is an industry event on Thursday 20th, where Ian Livingston will talk and prompt a discussion about his vision of computing education for the future, ahead of the launch of the new school curriculum in September 2014.

Hack the Future is an invite only event, please contact  info@marinestudios.co.uk for

tickets or press passes in advance.
