Year 10 do “Dragon’s Den”

Thanks to Ruth Lloyd-Williams from Network She who visited school on Friday to take part in the Y10 “Dragon’s Den” pitches.

Teams presented their ideas and were asked questions to support and guide them to the next level of developing their ideas and owning their own business.

There were 4 groups taking part; Castle Top Trumps, Castles and Dragons, Castle Conquerors and Zip Board. Their brief was to:

Work together with other pupils in a team of 4 members to design and develop an idea for a game which will meet the needs of a tourist attraction in North Wales. You will display your idea and pitch it to a panel answering any questions asked. You should use skills you have developed while at the school to design and make an innovative game to promote the tourist attraction. It can be a board game or interactive using ICT. This is an opportunity for you to show how creative and innovative you can be, as well as demonstrating other skills such as team working and problem solving.”

Learners did a fantastic job and Ruth was very impressed. Learners said it made it feel “very realistic” and “made all the work worthwhile” whilst also highlighting “next steps”.
