Rediscover Project Event – Tuesday 19th February 2019
Fuse Media Centre, Prudhoe, 10am – 3pm
The Rediscover Project is a Lloyds Bank programme, delivered on this occasion by Northumberland County Council.
The Rediscover Project – on a big scale! We will be bringing students from several schools in your area together in a big, free event designed to take them out of their comfort zone and into the real world of business.
Working with local businesses and tech partners, these challenging five hour sessions will leave your children refreshed, inspired and ready to start designing their digital futures.
These events are completely unique, and will yield different results each time. We’ll briefly introduce pupils to the six lesson plans and a challenge designed to get your pupils working together with new people, to start competitively setting up their very own digital business complete with a proposal, marketing plan and budget.
