A catastrophic cyberattack on the electric grid has devastated the economy. Great Britain has suffered a nationwide power failure. The whole of Great Britain's infrastructure has been affected including railway networks, blocked roads and street lights, putting the country into darkness. You and your team have no alternative but to get out, take any equipment you may need and attempt to get to the relief centre.

Make Happen is running its very first Operation Blackout Summer Experience. It is completely free to attend with lunch provided and reasonable travel costs reimbursed. You must be able to attend all three days of the event.

The experience is available for students currently in Year 9 and 10 and will run from the 29th-31st July, each day from 9:30am-3:30pm.
