On Wednesday 13th September our Year 11 Business Studies class along with their teacher Miss Grimes attended the Generation Innovation Student Invent Awards at the Belfast campus of University of Ulster.
Firstly they watched 7 student groups present their innovative and entrepreneurial skills with a product they developed on their own. A panel of judges were also on hand to ask questions after each of their pitches. Our pupils then had to vote on who they felt had the best product, turned out to be a school bag called Evy, who would ensure you wouldn't forget your homework or books for school, was the pupil's choice.
For lunch, pupils were then treated to a Dominos! Four workshops were attended in the afternoon facilitated by University of Ulster Business School, PwC, University of Ulster Product Design team and finally an App Design workshop. It was a knowledge filled, fun packed day and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Thanks to Diane Morrow for the invitation on behalf of the Generation Innovation programme at Catalyst Inc.
