Vodafone inspires STEM careers through Digital Creators Challenge

Vodafone works hard to encourage young people into STEM careers and inspire the future workforce, and this is one of the many reasons why women want to work with this prime employer.

Among its exciting education initiatives, Vodafone has launched a cross-curricular schools' competition dubbed the Digital Creators Challenge.

Connecting children to the careers of tomorrow

The challenge is designed to boost students’ digital skills and introduce them to future careers in the world of digital technology. Every team that enters has the chance of winning up to £6,000 to spend on IT equipment and an exclusive winners’ experience day at Vodafone HQ. 

In teams of up to five, the cross-curricular competition invites school pupils aged 11-14 to create and design an app to improve lives in their community.

An opportunity for everyone

The competition is even open to those who have never made an app before, with downloadable resources available so teachers can guide their students through the competition.

All competition content links to real-world careers and, along the way, it helps schools to meet Gatsby Benchmark 2, 4, 5, 6.

"We’re excited to offer two winning teams from each region the chance to attend a funded winners’ experience day at Vodafone HQ," said Vodafone.

"This prize will give your school an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse at life at Vodafone where your students will be able to put their questions to Vodafone ambassadors. Of the regional finalists, our judges will also select two category winners and announce the grand champions at the winners’ experience day."
