Creating Apps Hackday

Year 10 students got together on Saturday morning to work in teams creating apps using open data available.  A total of 10 students from Townsend took part in the event  run by Silicon Abbey - an informal network of local residents who use digital in their work. 
Students worked together in teams to design and pitch their apps to a team of three dragons represented by a member from Microsoft, local businesses and the founder of Silicon Abbey. 
All students thoroughly enjoyed themselves winning prizes which included some iTunes vouchers amongst other goodies.
Looking forward to the next one!!
