Design a Theme Park (Y9)Thu, 16 Jun 2022On Thursday 16th June, 30x Year 10 students went to Wolverhampton University (main campus, W'ton) for an Aim Higher event. Students completed a number of workshops throughout the day which included marketing, branding, product design, journalism and sustainability to design their own Theme Parks in small groups. During these workshops students were able to use the newest software packages to present their product and help design a USP, take part in a press-release in the media studio, conduct market research through interviewing the public around the university campus and design their own range of iced slushy drinks. The range of ideas and imagination used by the students was phenomenal and the university staff commented on how well the students engaged and took the task seriously throughout the day. Students were impressed by the top class facilities on offer for studying on these courses in the Business school and the equipment they were able to use and experience. All students were a credit to the Academy and everyone involved, staff and students alike enjoyed the day.
