30th October 2017
A group of South Devon College students have qualified for the finals of Operation Innovation 2017. The team comprises students Joel Stoddard-Turvey and Ben Baber-Hale from Computing and Nikita Coombes from Art and Design.
Students aged 16 and over from Fujitsu Education Ambassador establishments across the UK were invited to take part in the competition which was launched at the UK head office in London.
Entrants have to develop a concept around the internet of things (IoT) and come up with a way to solve real-world problem using IoT technology. The problem can occur within one of three sectors: education, utilities and or manufacturing.
The team worked hard over the summer to develop their concept and was overseen by Conrad Saunders – Programme Coordinator IT and Computing.
The students will present their concept to a panel of judges at Bletchley Park, The National Museum of Computing on Wednesday 1st November.
The winning team will be flown to Munich to attend the Fujitsu Forum event on 7th November 2017 and the winning team’s idea may actually go on to become a real-world innovation.
Good Luck to our team!
