Local firm Mars join Year 7 to deliver a superbly 'creative' product design day
As part of 'westgate6', Year 7 launched this term's big idea "Creativity" by spending a fantastic day with local company Mars.
Clare Moulder, Mars' Galaxy Brand Manager, ran a brilliant session, advising students on devising a new concept for a healthy lunchbox snack.
Students learned how to build a product concept board, design and name a product and how to 'pitch' their ideas in a Dragons Den style presentation to judges Ms Rose, Westgate's Head Teacher and Mars Marketing Managers.
"The activity was lively and full of great ideas." - Miss O'Neill, Westgate's Director of KS3.
"I was so impressed with the range of ideas, the teamwork and the exceptional behaviour of the students." -Clare Moulder, Mars' Galaxy Brand Manager.
The winning team of Archie, Amaan and Esha, whose 'Sweet n Spray', designed to make the taste of vegetables more appealing, was a big hit with the judges.
"I really enjoyed the day as I could be creative and we worked really well as a team." - Archie.
"Thank you to Clare from Mars for coming to work with us. I had a really good day." - Amaan.
