A Glimpse into the Future of Technology

Our second consecutive year of collaboration with HSBC, and the experience was nothing short of magical.

A Glimpse into the Future of Technology

Located in the heart of London's financial district, Canary Wharf is home to many global banks, but the towering HSBC Head Office stands out, not just for its impressive stature but also for what it houses on its 42nd floor - the Innovation Suite.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the friendly team at HSBC, who were eager to introduce us to the world of technology. The Innovation Suite hosts a blend of modern design and futuristic technology, sparking curiosity and wonder.  We got a glimpse of 3D holograms, interactive displays, virtual words and many more exciting technologies. 

Coding Magic with the Imagi Charm

One of the primary objectives of our visit was to get hands-on experience with real-world applications of coding. Under the guidance of HSBC's tech experts, our students got the opportunity to learn Python—a powerful and versatile programming language. Using this newfound knowledge, we embarked on coding challenges with an opportunity to be creative and work as a team to recreate the HSBC logo.

Exploring Virtual Worlds from the Sky

But the pinnacle of our experience was yet to come. As we strapped on VR headsets, the room transformed. No longer were we on the 42nd floor overlooking Canary Wharf; instead, we found ourselves navigating the Moon and other virtual terrains, exploring digital cities, and interacting with friends in virtual reality. The panoramic views of London juxtaposed with these virtual realms created a surreal experience, reminding us of the limitless possibility technology offers.

As always, a huge thank you to all at HSBC for a warm welcome and engaging sessions filled with wonder. Inspiring minds though opportunity!
