Capital One Coders 2019
Mr Gaskell and Mrs Heron took 30 eager Year 7s to the Capital One offices for their Coders day. Throughout the day they were taken through the design and creation of a real and functioning app using the MIT App Inventor. They all had great fun and produced some fantastic ideas and apps which they will be able to continue working on at home. After presenting their ideas to everyone (some of which involved some amazing dances), the judges went away to deliberate. Several groups won prizes of Amazon vouchers based on their app idea and presentation.
They all came away tired but well fed (there was food galore available throughout the day) and with a swag bag filled with numerous goodies. A great day was had by all.
