Now I will be honest when I say that I have no clue who Superstar YouTubers, LDShadowLady, AshDubh, SmallishBeans, Amy Lee33 and Tomohawk are but my kids are their number one fans. Between them they have accrued a huge ONE BILLION views across YouTube where they create videos of themselves playing Minecraft.
To put this is perspective it's almost the same number of views as the entire 10 series of ITV's Britain's Got Talent. These YouTube megastars will take centre stage at the event at EventCity on 29th & 30th October this year alongside a feast of digital fun for the family including:-
+The Digital, STEM and Coding Skills Zone
Perfect for any budding Mark Zuckerbergs - families can get their hands on the latest tech from robots to interactive lego. Kids can take part in challenges, learn code and may well be inspired to create the next Minecraft.
+The Safe Tech Zone
This zone gives you all you need to know to keep safe online from viruses and hackers to cyber bullies. The advice available here will help you to keep one step ahead.
