We invite you to take part in the first of a new series of events for Year 10–13 students. The events will cover computer science careers and real-world applications, and what it's like to study computer science at degree level.Hear from a diverse range of industry professionals, and take part in interactive workshops throughout the day — all in the incredible University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory.

We are delighted to welcome Professor Simon Peyton Jones, Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research and Chair of the NCCE, as our keynote speaker. He will be talking about the increasing demand and opportunities for computer scientists.

You will also have the opportunity to hear from current computer science university students and graduates.

We will be releasing the full programme in the coming weeks.
