The group worked together to ensure the excitement and dynamism of our industry was showcased at the event. Activities such as the Scout SV simulator, the clean room suit competition and ‘shopping trolley’ analytics challenge ensured that young people were entertained and intrigued about what a career in the technology industry in Wales could mean for them.

Young people are encouraged to visit information on some of the jobs they could aim for, where they can get the skills and qualifications needed, work experience, and to see case studies of young people working in the industry right now.
