In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, technology plays an increasingly vital role in shaping the future careers of young people. Equipping them with essential skills, such as coding and cybersecurity, not only prepares them for a diverse range of industries but also empowers them to become innovators and problem solvers.
HOST, Salford’s Home of Skills & Technology, MediaCityUK supplies a unique environment to support education. As a hub of innovation, it positions itself at the cutting edge of tech, welcoming industry leader Microsoft to collaborate on a range of specialist growth programmes and is an ideal space for young people to enrich their learning journey.
A delegation of Year 8 Chorlton High students was invited to HOST for an exclusive Microsoft outreach event to experience ultramodern industry technology and gaming equipment. This immersive workshop introduced the stunning Hololens 2, a state-of-the-art mixed reality platform, developed to enable and engage young minds to ‘Act with precision’, ‘Collaborate without boundaries’, and ‘Innovate with confidence’. Minecraft coding and cyber security activities opened further opportunities to build skills and knowledge.
