A showcase event at Fareham College displayed work from Level three gaming, computing, IT and business students to peers, parents and employers.
Projects included a retro game designed and coded completely from scratch, a task-completing robot constructed entirely from Lego, and an app that lets you place your image in exotic locations to enhance your Instagram feed.
The event also gave students a chance to present their work and gain experience in public speaking.
Fareham College’s director of faculty, Ashley Michael, said: “The digital sector is at the heart of contributing to the economy, so it is incredibly important that we prepare young people for the fantastic opportunities that exist for them in industry.
“This event gives our students the opportunity to showcase their amazing talent and skills, as well as providing them with a platform for their work to be recognised. I am extremely proud of what they have achieved.”

Student Tilly Price designed and coded a retro video game for the showcase. She said: “This event is a really good opportunity for us to show what we have learned during our course.” Tilly is hoping to go on to the University of the Arts in Norwich to study game art.
Tilly’s classmate Charlie Holland also worked on the game, and intends to attend the University of Winchester to study 3D environments. Charlie said: “I think the event went really well, and for me, being given the opportunity to speak to the guests has grown my confidence so now I feel better prepared when presenting to people in the future.”
