Students Explore the Digital World

Inspiring Industry Insight

AppNexus, a global internet technology company involved in digital advertising, created a unique and riveting day for our Year 8 students.

The organisation has established a Women’s Network to encourage more women into this sector.

Students met with some great AppNexians working in a broad range of roles from coding, design, engineering and consulting to account management etc.

In addition to hearing about their study, career paths and day to day job responsibilities students were tasked with designing an App that would improve certain education processes.

Each student group, coached by an AppNexian, had to factor in the objectives and usability for a difference audience.

Dragons' Den: They then presented their findings to a team of judges, who gave valuable feedback.

Students successfully rose to the challenge with some impressive solution focussed proposals.

Their enthusiasm and enjoyment was very evident throughout the day, with all also declaring how much they had learned about the company.

Thank you to AppNexus

for making our students feel so welcome and creating such a brilliant event for our school.
