Gamewagon Sponsors Junior Game Creators

Save kids careers from becoming automated – learn code

Learn code to automate or be automated

Growing up when I was not playing every sport under the sun, I was typing code from magazines to create games. It set the foundation for a great career and today I’m looking to give every child the chance to learn code to be a digital leader of the future.

Kids are good users of tech but few are exposed to creating it.

14m Jobs could be lost to automation

The BBC recently covered a study that if the UK education system does not give kids the right digital skills then they risk losing future careers to automation.

That is why we have developed after school clubs, holiday camps and kids parties based around creating video games not just playing them. Junior Game Creators uses fun game based learning to teach kids the hard hard and soft skills required to create technology. Just don’t tell the kids it’s educational!

Inspiring Digital Creativity to secure our kids futures.
