The Big Idea is a new project which is available to your Year 7 - 9 students virtually.
Students will act as a brand new 'social enterprise' company who want to gain funding from Dell for a new and exciting tech product! During the workshop, students will be encouraged to develop their knowledge of social issues in their community and the way that technology can be used for the greater good.
The workshop is two hours long and you can choose the timings for the workshop to run which suit your students' timetables. Hosted on the virtual platform of your choice, a Talent Foundry facilitator will deliver the session with potential for Dell volunteer virtual support.
