Samsung Next Gen: Designing a product:
Students were given a chance to imagine the future by exploring the role tech can play in solving some of society’s biggest issues. Bow School ran a programme that inspired students with ideas and careers that used tech for positive change, supporting educators with engaging plug and play learning journeys, culminating in a nationwide competition. Many KS3 students and some KS4 students were able to think creatively about how technology can help us imagine a better world. These students, not only were able to learn a valuable process for generating and shaping ideas but also built confidence in creative ideation and problem-solving. They had an understanding about how careers in research & development (R&D), product design and marketing are part of this process. Internal competition was also held to encourage our pupils.
