    Technical testing encompasses lots of different techniques, so instead of the usual exercises and discussions, we will be hosting a Technical Testing circus! Our circus will involve Mentors hosting 'stands' demonstrating different Technical testing techniques all at the same time! Students will have the evening to move from stand to stand and get involved in lots of fun exercises and games to learn what it means to be a technical tester.

    If you would like to host a stand at the Circus, please let us know via the RSVP and/or contact Karo (@karostol) or Mark (@markbunce) on twitter
