Bernadette and Simon’s long term vision is to develop a Virtual Reality game that gives young people insight into and the confidence to engage with work. At the hack, they decided to focus on creating tools to capture and sort the experiences of young people so they can use them to inform the future content of their game. What did they achieve? According to Simon: ‘Shitloads!’

They built two ways of capturing and sorting information from young people using Facebook and Instagram along with a prototype VR game showing how this user content will be used in the game. Bernadette also sent her first tweet.
