Everyone at Furnace are delighted that our P7 pupil, Abbie Wallace, took the top prize in the nationwide TECHBOT Competition, after her artwork was selected from more than 4,000 entries. Abbie has won for her school a brand new ClassBuddy(tm) ‘Charge and Sync’ trolley from LapSafe® Products, with her artwork displayed as a graphic on the doors. Abbie has also won us 5 brand-new iPad Air’s complete with cases and an iPad and case for herself to take home. The iPad cases also display the winning artwork.
The presentation was made at a special ceremony in front of parents and friends of the school.
To enter the contest, run by ICT charging and security specialist LapSafe® Products Ltd, based in Essex, primary school students had to draw a robot and name it. Abbie impressed LapSafe’s guest judge, Apple Distinguished Educator, Paul Hutton with her drawing of ‘Anti-Bully-Bot Bob’, a happy and helpful robot that would help if you were being bullied and always there to help. ‘Anti-Bully-Bot Bob’ also has a special pocket where you can put all your worries, his mantra being “No negativity only positivity”.
