Don’t just take our word for how inspiring it is – this is what the participants said:

Sam, ’green’ – “I really enjoyed the trip to Green Park. I was amazed at how productive we were throughout the day with brainstorming sessions, developing our ideas and presenting them to a panel of judges. We were given huge creative freedom around the idea of the Internet of Things; a concept that different things in the world can feed off of each other and be controlled by being connected to each other. We even got to see a demonstration of a drone and got loads of pizza.”

Loubna,’grey’ – “When we told the students that they would be pitching their solution at the end of the day they looked at me as if to say, ‘It’s not gonna happen!’ says Loubna. “But because the day was structured into smaller modules, with each aspect introduced gradually, by the afternoon they were doing everything by themselves. They came with very little knowledge and left with a solution – it was amazing!”

Simon, ‘teacher’ – “The students loved the day and found it “inspirational” and a “great insight into the industry”. The teachers loved the relevance to what we teach in the classroom and how it helped students to develop life skills such as teamwork, presenting and how to develop ideas. The students have definitely thought more about career options in IT & telecoms since the trip and realised that there is more to IT & telecoms than programming computer games.”

Janet, ‘judge’ – “Thanks for an amazing and inspiring afternoon. I would love to be involved again so please let me know as things develop and if you would like any help in promoting the event etc”
