Love Tech have also created a QR code treasure hunt for the young adults attending to show off their skills, with the grand prize being a Oculus Quest II VR headset, sponsored by BCS with the winner selected by prize draw.

There will also be goodie bags sponsored by Derivco for all those who complete the 'tech themed' treasure hunt with a difference!
