Podcasting with the Best of the Best

Posted on Comments comments (0)

When we were in Brisbane, Chris Titley asked us if we could do a podcast with him. BizBites, the interviews PowerShot does, are an idea based of his podcasts. We were very happy to do a podcast with him, and were very excited. When we got to Chris’s office, he took us to the podcast room. The room had microphones that we spoke into while the audio was recording, then Chris edits it and posts it. Chris asked us a few questions and we answered them. We had so much fun! At the end of the p...

Posted on Comments comments (0)

Woohoo! We won the award! After we get off stage we go out of the dining room and back out into the networking area shaking with excitement. Our parents are so happy for us and giving us big hugs. We go over to the professional photographer and get a few photos with just the team and then another with all the other winners. At this point in time, we all still couldn’t believe that we have just won a national iAward, and we will be representing Australia in the Australasian finals. The A...

Innovation & Inspiration

Being the only girl amongst three boys may not be easy, but I say ‘Try your best, and do good’. I love quotes, they inspire me! If you think about a quote and read it really carefully, you can find that it means something in your life. Along my journey through PowerShot I have learnt many things. These things are called life skills. When you grow up you will face challenges and barriers. You wil...

TREMENDOUS TESTING

Posted on Comments comments (0)

PowerShot App has now come to the stage of testing. We have been testing by one person filming, another measuring the speed, and finally someone recording the speeds down. This data will help make the app more accurate. This is because we didn't use the app to test we used another expensive device that measures the speed when you kick. It measure by sending out a beam, and making it bounce back off the ball and then coming back to the device, with the speed. Though this machine was expensive....

Creative Coding

Posted 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 c...
