Cisco Little Big Awards National Final

Team receiving their certificates

A team of S2s -  Oriana, Steven, Cain, Connor and Matthew were invited to the national final of the Cisco Little Big Awards down at Cisco HQ in London. The pupils had to present their Internet of Things idea to a panel of judges and an audience of their peers, followed by promoting their idea at a trade stand. Our team came up with idea of a piece of wearable tech. - 'The Broadcoat' which among other things changes temperature according to weather forecasts from the internet. The pupils also got the chance to take part in a Microbit workshop and received a tour of the state of the art Cisco building. If that wasn't enough, the team won the category for Creativity, Design & Usability.
