Case Study 1

We were delighted to be able to support Flegg High school with their technology day with an Technological Enterprise Challenge.

Working with groups on a carousel basis we started off with giving an insight into how technology had changed our everyday lives. We then gave some information on 'the marketing mix', looking at some modern products, how they are priced, promoted and where/how they are sold.

The groups were then set the challenge of designing and building a new technological prototype using a wide range of resources that we provided. The groups had to, not only, build the product, but create a name, logo and advertising material that would tell us about the product, it's features uses and why we should buy it.

We were astounded by the depth of thought that took place and the quality of prototypes, marketing materials and pitches made in a short amount of time.

Products varies greatly from an full body, interactive games suit (not forgetting the mask) to state of the art motor vehicles with inbuilt future technologies.

A great day was had by all and the students all enjoyed the hands on nature of the activities and enterprise learning.

Case Study 2

Ormiston Venture Acadamy contacted us to work with 120 year 6 students on a transition day visit from their feeder primary school.

The focus of the event was the 'future' and we provided a whole group presentation before sending them off to their teaching rooms to work in smaller groups.

The presentation started off by explaining how we are all attracted to different products for different reason such as taste, technology, purpose/function and cost.

We then had a look at how products had evolved from the past to be very different to how they are today and why. We looked at bicycles, televisions, games consoles, games, mobile phones, personal stereos and cameras. Pictures illustrated what products of the future might look like with flying cars, robots and holographic TV's!

The groups then went back to their teaching rooms to discuss future products and create posters detailing their creations.

Case Study 3

The aim of the project was to get Primary and Secondary Students to work together on Enterprising Projects to benefit their school and community.
