Woosehill Beavers had an amazing evening at the Apple Store in The Oracle Reading, learning to become computer designers of the future.

The youngsters found about technology and data, old computers and how to research them on the iPad, were shown how to work an Apple Pen and then used it to design a computer for the future!

Beavers had such wonderful ideas as a computer shaped like a bunny, one that listened to commands, one where you simply had to hover your fingers over the keypad and one entrepreneur even designed their own brand name and logo!

Thanks to the staff in the store, the Beavers were all able to complete their Digital ­Citizen badge at the end of the session.
