London’s Victoria and Albert Museum will hold a Digital Festival for 16 to 24-year-olds this weekend.
The one-day festival will feature a varied programme of talks, practical workshops and film screenings from digital industry experts.
Subjects range from coding and hacking to a drop-in session with designers Neil Mendoza and Anthony Goh, who create birds constructed from discarded mobile phones that can receive text messages to make them sing.
Hands-on workshops include toy hacking, where young people can experiment with modifying toys to subvert their functions.

The festival will take place on March 5 2011.
