BIMA D-Day at Eastwood High School

Equator were delighted to get involved in this year’s BIMA D-Day for the second year running – it’s a day to promote the digital industry amongst students with the aim of inspiring an interest in digital and helping them to forge a potential career. Our designer Laurent Chatelet and developer Paciencia Zinga Canda got the students of Eastwood High School thinking about how they could fit in the digital world by giving them an inside look at a ‘typical day’ at Equator.

Our designer Laurent Chatelet and developer Paciencia Zinga Canda got the students of Eastwood High School thinking about how they could fit in the digital world by giving them an inside look at a ‘typical day’ at Equator.

Our team shared insights on what we do daily in the studio which left the students eager to find out more turning a 1 hour presentation to a 3 hour talk – we couldn’t be more delighted at their enthusiasm.

The day didn’t finished there; we also had time to work on different workshops including mobile app challenges, social media engagement and digital product creation for the community.

It was amazing to see how the students are already engaging with the digital world and coming up with creative and innovative ideas that can help them at school or help their parents busy lives (we loved the idea of finding the cheapest petrol with a geo-targeted app – keep up the creativity Eastwood High School). Our team were pleased to be mentoring such an innovative bunch.

It wasn’t all about the students; the teachers also had questions on how to make their classes more interactive and engaging – something which definitely needs to be considered as technology advances and digital becomes part and parcel of our day to day lives.

Let’s keep inspiring the digital age and bring on more events like this.
