Digital Day

M-SParc is taking part in the first ever Wales Tech Week, by hosting 'Digital Day' - a whole day of events with a tech and digital theme!

Wales Tech Week is a new initiative to showcase the ingenuity, innovation and creativity of the people, businesses and organisations in Wales' technology sector. Created by Technology Connected, the voice of the technology industry in Wales for more than 20 years, the event will be a festival of webinars, resources, roundtables and digital events from the technology community. The week takes place from the 13th – 17th July, and on the 16th M-SParc will be hosting the day.

10:00 - 11:00 Still Going Strong
An exciting opportunity to hear from all of M-SParc's tenants. This webinar is for anyone who's ever wondered what happens at M-SParc. There's a lot going on, from new and innovative inventions, to solutions for COVID19! Everyone is welcome to tune in, from the community to industry.

12:00 - 13:00 Digital Marketing
Learn more about Sky AdSmart, LinkedIn for business, and Instagram top tips. You'll get an overview of them all, and an opportunity to ask questions.

13:30 - 14:40 How to start a digital business
Gaz Thomas,, and Pryderi ap Rhisiart, M-SParc, will inspire you with stories of their own digital start-ups, and also offer practical advice to anyone starting a business. We especially encourage young people, and those thinking of starting their own businesses, to join in for this one.

15:00-18:00 Create your own '80s video game, and North Wales Tech talks
Learn Python Coding, and in just 10 lines of code you can create a simple video game. North Wales Tech will then host a talk on technology and working from home - useful for us all during this time, but of particular interest to those who do remote teaching, pre-recorded lectures, or even host their own YouTube channels.

Due to the global impact of Covid-19, Wales Tech Week will take place as an entirely virtual experience, with a range of activities accessible across the world in real time.
