JWA at Lincoln University

15th May 2018

On 9th May 2018 year 7's attended a Powering Transformations event at Lincoln University.

The students were able to tour around the university as well as produce an idea for an app to help people in their local community to solve a social issue.  The students were split into 9 groups and all were tasked with coming up with ideas for their app, researching , pricing and how it will help people and why it would sell.  They then had to put this in a powerpoint presentation and present it to the rest of the group.

 

The focus was on teamwork, how computers affect our lives, social issues, problem solving as well as working closely with student ambassadors from the university and an introduction to what life is like at university through the tour and question and answer sessions. Event providers commented several times how well behaved the students were and how well they engaged in the workshops

 

The winning team included Ellie Jacobs, Emily Lamberton, Millie Board, Livia Fryer, Grace Parker and Lilli Wingate.
