Creative Coding

Posted by info on Comments comments (0)

PowerShot has been a great journey so far, but one of the highlights have been coding. Jason Holdsworth and two of his JCU students, Jess McKenzie and Tyler Harris, have been coming into our weekly meetings at five o’clock and teaching us how to code. It has been a great experience, as we have learnt so much.


I have especially enjoyed this experience. Since I was the only girl power of PowerShot, it was great to have a girl mentor! Jess McKenzie has inspired me to code. Jess puts all her time and effort into creating coding booklets that we can follow, and make a cool app. The whole team has learnt lots, and we are all inspired to code in future reference.

Success @ Tropical North Qld Innovation Awards

Posted by info on Comments comments (0)

On Wednesday the 16 we were privileged to be apart of and a finalist in the Tropical North Queensland Innovation Awards. The award that we were finalists in was the peoples choice award, but we did go to the top three in Mayors Choice Award, but unfortunately didn’t win overall in that category, but just being there was fantastic. My school Smithfield State High School won an award because of their partnership between Trinity Beach State School and JCU.

One of the main highlights for me was when James O’Loghlins did his talk. Many of the things he said was very interesting and important. Also listening to his stories of others our age doing amazing things. One of the stories was about a boy in America who saved his school thousands a year by simply the font of writing the smallest and simplest to save ink. We were privileged that we got to meet him and get a copy of his book!

PowerShot in the Media

Going Public Again:

It was really nerve-racking the first time Cory went on to the radio, but after that it didn’t really scare him because he had lots of confidence. Going onto the TV wasn’t scary at all because it was pre-recorded and they took lots of takes so it could be perfect. Newspaper wasn’t as hard as Jess and Cory thought because they just asked you questions and you had to answer. Taking the perfect photo was the biggest challenge, because it needed to be the right angle and be in focus.


New PowerShot Project:

The team has recently introduced and YouTube channel. It shows off what happens behind the scenes or just random ideas we get. Also we will do some serious video on the YouTube channel, like our pitch. We set it up as another type of marketing but also as a way for us to learn how to edit videos. We would really appreciate it if you could subscribe to our channel as well because it will really help us out a lot. https:/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-VWfFRiIc0WnWsXWi7gZfw
