AWS GetIT is an initiative designed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to encourage girls aged 12-13 to consider a career in tech – challenging long-standing gender stereotypes.
Running between the fall and spring terms of the school year, AWS GetIT invites teams from different schools to an app-building competition to solve real issues faced by their school or community. Along the way, participants learn practical digital and IT skills, experience working as a team, and gain self-confidence by presenting ideas to wider audiences – all while being exposed to IT as a potential career.
Mr Sandhu and Mr Gill have been working with Year 8 students to successfully complete the Amazon GetIT competition. Students have been asked to come up with application ideas to support either the School or local community. The students have shown a variety of skills such as teamwork, time management, creativity and innovative thinking.
Congratulations to the finalists, 'RESSK' team for making it to the semi-finals to the AWS GetIT Competition.
