Year 11 students create ground breaking video game that boosts literacy and reading!
Well done to our Year 11 students Leynner, Bruno and Charles - The AlphaApps, for their innovative work entitled 'Big T Adventures'.
Our boys have created an augmented reality comic book called 'Big T Adventures' which, along with the app (which they have also made), you can scan pages of the comic book bringing the characters to life in your actual environment as you interact with them using your phone to play the augmented reality video games. Each of the games is linked directly to what is happening on the page you have scanned.
The comic was used last summer term in english classes to engage Year 10 and Year 8 students with english literacy. Students were able to read the comic and come up with their own alternative endings.
More about The AlphaApps
The team have won a TeenTech Award and just recently won the Gold CREST Award. TeenTech have thousands of schools across the UK and other European countries that take part. A Gold CREST is normally reserved for A Level STEM Students. So this is a wonderful achievement for our boys.
The AlphaApps have recently been invited to talk on stage at major technology conferences such as COMPTIA and The Global Innovation Forum, where they shared their product with influential people within the tech industry. They impressed the CEO of Microsoft UK at COMPTIA who commented on how professional and smooth their presentation was.
We are extremly proud of Leynner, Bruno and Charles and the work they are doing!
