What tech can do in the hands of students!

Advanced tech club

Last year I was approached by a group of high school students interested in starting up an after school tech club. How could I refuse?

Just over 25 years ago my own interest in technology was sparked as a student of ACS Hillingdon. After choosing the ambitious name “Advanced Technology Club” we set out on our first project. The “iPad Classic” is a hollowed out beige Mac Classic from 1990 with the screen replaced by a stripped down 1st generation iPad. It really is a piece of functional art and now sits in our Technology Museum to inspire younger students.
