Month: April 2019

Year 4 students show off their projects

Beth helps a participant try out her Virtual Reality project.

Here are some images of the recent year 4 poster presentation day, the student’s chance to showcase their projects.  We had some guests from Shopify to judge the poster competition and present the prizes.  They were particularly impressed with the range of projects produced, but finally settled on Manon’s “CultureMapper” app which aims to engage young people with cultural experiences.  She followed a Design Thinking process and involved her users at each step to create an appealing prototype.  We’ll be sharing some of the projects in more detail over the next few months.
