Over the 5th-7th August, teams of young creatives and wannabe entrepreneurs descended on Glasgow Science Centre for VentureJam 2016.

Organised by Young Scot and Glasgow City of Science, the weekend Jam brought together hipsters, hustlers and hackers to come up with fresh thoughts on air quality and invent the next big thing. Inspirational mentors from the world of television, gaming, product design and 3D animation, as well as legal experts and environmental gurus, guided the teams as they tackled the green challenge set by the judges.

Here are some of snaps of the creative process over the weekend.

 An amazing weekend of creativity and innovation ahead!
