Year 9 Eggbuckland students win local design competition

On Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd May 2019, 13 students from Year 9, (nominated by Computer Science or Graphics), took part in ‘Hackfest’ at Plymouth College of Art. The theme was redesigning our city and incorporated health, social enterprise, mobility and environment to name a few.

On the Tuesday, students attended workshops in coding, 2d design, 3d design, rendering and how to pitch a product or service.

On the Wednesday, our students split into 3 groups to do a ‘Hackfest’. 6 hours to design a prototype and market their product. Our groups’ ideas included: a laptop that could be powered by the processor and memory in a person’s smart phone and utilised its screen as the touch pad too; a smart cup and wrist band that monitored your hydration level and alerted you to drink water and the repurposing of unused shops as skate parks for young people.

They all enjoyed the two days immensely and their skills benefitted greatly from their participation. We are therefore delighted that Hydrate or Dydrate (smart band and cup) won ‘most investible’ category and Eggbuckland through to the next round at Sandy Park on the 17th June.
