Moov2 took part in the BIMA Digital Day at Itchen College on Tuesday the 15th of November. 30 IT college students met Dan Thomas (Director) and Jack Davies (Website Developer), to give them an insight into what a full-time job in this sector entails. After a brief introduction into what the Moov2 team does, a discussion was opened about the different routes that are available to young people within digital industries.
As part of the experience for the students, Jack and Dan put to the students three different problems based on real world issues. This was to see how they could use their digital skills to find solutions. The teams were made up of 3-5 students, which Jack and Dan offered helping hands throughout the day to show the students their expertise.
The problems were -
TATA Communications - poverty task
Standard Life - money matters task
UK Cancer Research - obesity causes cancer task
With the tasks set, each team began forming a campaign around their solutions, constructing notes based on research around the issues and what may cause the problems in the first place. Once the problem had been defined and general notes had been compiled, each team focused heavily on their solutions, how they would work and how they would look.
