Budding Entrepreneurs from Form 4 attempted to cash in on their best Christmas ideas when they recently pitched their festive product concepts to a panel of judges.
The 11-year-olds presented a wonderful series of innovative designs and ideas as they all used of their recently acquired knowledge of electrical circuits to produce a selection of prototypes to a group of ‘dragons.’
The Dragons’ Den style exercise allowed pupils to display their creative Christmas designs and include items such as lights and motors that were integrated into the designs.
Judges then selected their favourite products after a series of probing questions that the budding entrepreneurs did their best to answer.
Paul Swalwell, Marketing Manager, was one of the judges. He said: “I really enjoyed seeing some of the superb ideas come to life. The pupils produced some really interesting designs and their presentation skills were superb.”
Adding: “The pupils deserve a big well done for all their efforts and I am sure we may have a few budding entrepreneurs willing to pitch to the Dragon’s for real in the next few years.”
A group of three claimed the top prize. Santa’s Secret Helpers, Stuart, Ted and Jolyon all were recently presented with a certificate in the library at the start of term. Well done boys.
