Q. What do Cream, Them Crooked Vultures & Lucy Pearl all have in common?
A. They are all supergroups.
After joining forces with Hive Learning Network and InnovateHer, we’re now in one of our own – GoDigital! Funded by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), GoDigital has embarked on an ambitious programme to inspire 12 & 13 year olds with the skills and confidence to consider a career in the digital sector.
Starting with an assembly to a full year group, the programme progresses onto a one day design sprint for 30 students to explore their skills in a fast paced,energetic way. Following this, clusters of 5 schools will work together on a Deep Dive programme of activity to produce a project on the ‘Internet of Things’. Taking place alongside these Deep Dives will be InnovateHer taking their fantastic 8 week programme into participating schools and inspiring groups of young girls to hopefully become the next Ada Lovelace! The whole programme will come to an end in Summer 2019 with a Challenge and Showcase event!We’ve reached well over 5000 young people so far through our assemblies and 1 day design sprints, with plenty of activity booked in to kick off as soon as schools are back in September 2019.
Look out for more updates from your new favourite supergroup – GoDigital!
