The ICT and Business Faculty are presently running the ‘Make an App’ competition for budding app developers. The competition was launched to pupils in December and will be run across the month of January during which any pupil from Years 7 – 11 will be able to put their creative juices to work and design an app which can do anything they like!
The top 3 apps will be selected by Mr Rigby, Mr Easton and Marc Littlemore from the BBC who is joining us in the project! As well as prizes from the Academy being up for grabs the winning app will be put forward into the ‘Den’ of the Computer at Schools Network of Excellence.
What will happen in the ‘Den’?
It will basically take the format of a ‘Dragon’s Den’ theme where apps selected from schools around the UK will sell their idea to the ‘Den’. If selected, it will be professionally developed and made into a commercial app available for download! That means you could start making money now!
How do I get involved?
Visit the ICT and Business Faculty and sign up. Attend App Inventor enrichment every Thursday 3 – 4pm in Miss Dutton’s room (F020).
