In June, schools and colleges from across the East Anglian region converged on Cambridge for the pilot of Future Experience Points (FXP) festival. Conscious Communications collaborated with Rizing Games (the student-run games company based at Cambridge Regional College), Jagex and North Cambridge Academy to create the festival, which will be open to schools and colleges across the UK in 2017.
We wanted to create an initiative that would provide genuine career opportunities for school and college students and open their eyes to the possibilities offered by creative digital industries, while supporting teachers in effectively delivering the new computer science curriculum.
Our Managing Director, Alison, recently featured in the world leading games industry magazine, Develop, discussing our involvement with FXP, how successful the inaugural event was, and our plans for next year’s festival.
