Winners of the wiCADET Mobile App competition at Ulster University

A group of Year 10 students from Loreto College has been hard at work since September, participating in a Mobile App. Camp, wiCADET, hosted by the University of Ulster. The pupils have demonstrated high levels of teamwork and commitment throughout.

On Friday 23rd January, one team of five Loreto students won first prize in the Innovation section of the App Camp Final, beating 14 teams from other schools with Chatty App, an audio app designed for use by the visually impaired. The competition was judged by representatives from the University, Coleraine Chamber of Commerce, local businesses, Citi Group and Ulster Bank.

Congratulations to Eve Gardiner, Joseph Mullan, Aaron Myers, Carmen Owens and Klaudia Silaowska, who each won a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Loreto’s other team, consisting of Aoibheann Conway, Serena Corbett and Owen Tsang, also attended and worked hard on their idea, but were unsuccessful in the final.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, congratulated the students on their success and paid tribute to their hard work and enthusiasm throughout the project.
