Well done to a group of six of our AGS Young Engineers won the Project K competition held recently at Aberdeen City Councils Marshall College. They have were up against six other teams from across the city. The boys who have spent a considerable amount of their own time reaching and developing their proposal had to present to a panel of four judges and a ACC assembled audience.
I bit more information on Project K:
Project K is a problem solving competition designed to get young people (14-18 years old) thinking about problems that exist within their communities that could be tackled using new technologies. The key problem solving aspect of the project is framed around digital technology, design and software application development. Teams of young people will work together on an ‘App’ that will address a particular challenge they themselves experience within their own community and/or environment. Aberdeen City Council run the competition by facilitating workshops, presentations and also provide the competition prizes (4x3D printers). The winning ‘app’ will be further developed where appropriate and aligned to ‘City Lab’ initiative or developed independently. Young Persons involved have a guarantee ‘goodwill’ offer of job experience places to further develop their skills.
