Students visit Anglia Ruskin University

Thirty Year 9 students at King Harold Academy attended a workshop entitled 'Powering Transformation' which was delivered by The Transformation Trust and DELL at Anglia Ruskin University.

The workshop - part of the Through Make Happen initiative - saw groups of students identify a community social issue within the world, then use technology to come up with a solution. 

At the end of the workshop, the students - along with students from another school - had the opportunity of putting forward their ideas to a panel of judges.  

The judges were incredibly impressed with the quality of the presentations and how wide ranging the issues identified had been.

They said the students were able to articulate their ideas to solve the issues clearly, with one of the King Harold Academy groups selected as the overall winners for their presentation on supporting those with mental health and anxiety.

They now hope to become the regional winner.
