Rise Up Academy Summer School 2022

Spend two fun packed days in August getting hands-on media technology experience at the FREE Rise Up Academy Summer School, which is now open to all students from years 7-13.

From building a TV studio and making a show, through to exploring an outside broadcast truck, creating graphics and getting hands-on with editing and virtual production, this two day experience is the perfect way to spend a couple of days finding out what it takes to get great media content onto your TV, tablet or phone.

What’s more, you’ll be learning from the experts, including professionals from BT Sport, ITV, Discovery, Sky & disguise, Mo-Sys, Final Pixel, AWS, Singular and A&E Live.

The Rise Up Academy Summer School is taking place at the Global Academy, Hayes. It is split into two different sessions: 2-3 August for students in years 7-9 and 4-5 August for students in years 10-13. It is free to attend and lunch/refreshments will be provided.
