Woosehill Beavers earn digital badges

Woosehill Scouts
Woosehill Scouts enjoyed a session at the Apple store in Reading to earn a digital badge

Beavers from 1st Woosehill Scout Group had an amazing evening at the Apple Store in The Oracle learning to become computer designers of the future.

The youngsters, aged only 6 to 8, found out about technology and data, old computers and how to research them on the iPad, and were shown how to work an Apple Pen and then used it to design a computer for the future!

Beavers had such wonderful ideas as a computer shaped like a bunny, one that listened to commands, one where you simply had to hover your fingers over the keypad to type and one junior entrepreneur even designed their own brand name and logo.

Thanks to the staff in the store, the Beavers were all able to complete their Digital ­Citizen badge at the end of the session.
