Digital Taster Day

18th Apr 2017

Digital Taster Day

Congratulations go to 13 Y10 girls for their outstanding participation in the BBC's 'Digital Taster Event' at Teesside University on Tuesday 4th April.

The event, held on the University campus, opened student's eyes to the exciting world of digital technology: it's careers, developments and innovations.


Students met industry professionals who shared tips and advice on how to turn a passion for social media into lucrative employment; the girls were extremely happy to learn that their love for Instagram selfies could lead to a career! Also enjoyed were sessions in web programming, virtual reality and trying out the new Snapchat glasses.


Standing out amongst schools from across the region, our participants confidently shared ideas and opinions throughout the day. This cumulated in a final feedback session where 6 business ideas were shared with all participants and industry professionals; three of those ideas from Manor Community Academy.

A thoroughly enjoyed day by staff and students.

Well done to all.
