PwC Channel Islands

As part of their commitment to digital upskilling, PwC is introducing its successful technology education outreach program to Guernsey schools during the current academic year. Your child could be one of the first to try this fun and lively way to learn about algorithms, debugging and cyber safety in this special one-day half term club for children aged 8 to 11 years.

The day will be run by experienced staff from PwC and Digital Greenhouse. Water and snacks will be provided, and children should bring a packed lunch. Participants will need to bring a fully-charged iPad, Chromebook or laptop for their own use during the day. If you don't have one, please let us know as you could borrow one from us. Drop off from 8.45am, pick up at 3.00pm. There is no charge for participating in Hive Hack Mini.

This event will have the same activities as the Hive Hack Mini in August so please do not book tickets if your child took part in the summer. Consent forms for this event will be sent separately

With an estimated 30% of jobs in the Channel Islands likely to be automated by 2035, there is a pressing need for organisations and education to work together to prepare young people for the jobs of the future. PwC's Hive Hackers program is designed to help this next generation develop strong digital literacy to improve their employability and inspire them to pursue further study and careers in technology. Whilst technology is the primary focus, the Hive Hackers program also offers children opportunities to be creative, solve problems, and develop communication and collaboration skills.

Come and join the fun!
