Schools Challenge 2016

On February 2nd 2016 at Worthing Rugby Club, Clear Computing will be proudly presenting the 3rd annual “Clear Computing Schools Challenge” for schools.

Clear_001The challenge this year is “To build an app or social media platform for young people in education”.

After recent news showing the rising concerns of teenagers online being caught up in cyber bullying and inappropriate comments on social media, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to hear from teenagers on how they would design a social media platform for teenagers, with consideration to these issues in mind.

We have invited schools throughout Sussex to come and take part in the challenge. In their teams, they will put their ideas together with consideration to fields such as design, functionality, finance, security and marketing and will be mentored by experts in these fields.

Once they have developed their ideas into a presentation, they will propose their ideas to the experts on a judging panel, based on TV’s Dragon’s Den. The winning team will then be decided by the judges, and the following week on the 9th February (Internet security day) the winning team will have a mystery prize presented to them by a special guest at their school.

This will be a very exciting and fun day for Clear Computing and we are excited to hear and learn the views of school pupils of the social media generation.
