SEE STEAM HACK (aged 12-15)
This stage of Scrum Educational Experience focuses on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths) subjects and is aimed at students at 12-15 years old. These hackathon-like events, which can last one or two days, aim to inspire teenagers into technology, reveal their entrepreneurial spirit and help them to choose GCSE subjects. The program focuses on:
The IDEATION stage encourages students to brainstorm solutions to solve problems presented. The sky’s the limit!
The TESTING stage is dedicated to speaking to potential users. We cover various methods and gather feedback about solutions online and offline.
The PROTOTYPING stage helps in developing products using lean methodologies. Paper, laptops, phones, acting – all resources are encouraged!
The ACTIVATION stage looks at different business models and marketing tools. It teaches the students about managing money and helps the in understanding business.
The PITCHING stage is all about presenting in a simple, structured way. It focuses on brand building and confident communication.

SEE POTENTIAL HACK (aged 16-19)
These Scrum Educational Experience sessions focus on employability and career development and are aimed at students at 16-19 years old, especially those attending further education colleges.
This is a professional development programme that can last anything between a few hours to a few months. The goal is to activate hidden potential and help young people in exploring the pool of jobs in technology that traditional education gives them limited access to. Our SEE The Future programme focuses on developing skills, creating a professional profile and preparing young people for the world of work.
The programme explores young people’s strengths, the opportunities they are interested in and then equips them with the skills to bridge the gap between opportunity and career. We collaborate with recruitment companies and placements providers in order to train them in various innovative areas including FinTech, ProTech and EdTech.
After starting with a pilot at Barking & Dagenham College, we continued collaborating with teachers to create high quality programmes.
At I&I, we believe that having skills and knowledge is a great start. However, what’s even more important is the ability to activate the theory in practice. With the support of our partners, we create a safe environment for students to test their skills and build confidence while working on real projects.
Practical Placements for College Students in collaboration with Future Coders
In order to support teenagers at each stage of their development, we are proudly working in a very close partnership with Future Coders. Together, we prepare skilled and confident software developers by providing them with a high-quality, meaningful, project-based, work experience.

SEE NEW TALENT HACK (aged 20-25)
SEE New Talent focuses on University students and professionals working at large corporations. At our hackathon-like events, which last between 1 and 5 days, we facilitate collaboration between people from worlds of tech and business, so they can skillshare and learn from each other. A simple approach based on sprints and challenges helps them to understand agile methodologies, innovation sourcing and how they can understand each other and become more efficient.
We organise hackathons with challenges built around the current problems your organisation is facing. Participants work on a predesigned structure that helps them approach the projects in a new, innovative way. The goal is to take everyone out of their original boxes and highlight different talents from various departments.
During SEE we work with teams, to approach projects from a more innovative and digital perspective, exposing them to some new tools, and training them on scrum methodologies. Each participant is exposed to alternative ways to manage projects, approach clients, prioritise time and take on tasks. The original focus is on education and individual development but very often SEE can be treated as an innovation sourcing project.
SEE is an innovative recruitment tool. We use it as probably one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to source new talent. If recruitment is the focus, in addition to current employees, we invite young people on our database to attend the workshops. These potential candidates can bring innovation, showcase their skills and learn more about the organisation. Using our simple evaluation model that can be tweaked depending on organisational goals, your HR department and other employees can evaluate participants. Based on the assessment during the hackathon they could be offered placements, apprenticeships or full time employment.
