Clare Sutcliffe – Hacking the Future

Clare Sutcliffe is a user experience designer and accidental social entrepreneur. She has recently created a social enterprise that gives children the opportunity to learn to programme computers.

Clare trained in print design at Bath Spa University and eyed the ‘Interactive arts’ students with suspicion. She now regrets not starting her career in digital design but in a way she didn’t have a choice. Her ICT education was dry as bone and as a result she ditched it as soon as she could. She was shocked to find that 10 years later, the curriculum has hardly changed at all. Getting kids interested in programming has become the bee in her bonnet and it’s made her determined to change the way society views computer science.
