Over the last 5 years, Healing school has submitted 15 teams to the TeenTech awards, however, only one previous team has ever made it through to the final… until this year!
The team made up of Year 7 girls, Ellie -Mai Rayworth, Millie Major and Isobel Downing came up with an innovating concept for the Fashion and Technology category. The team presented their business proposal called ‘Slide-ya- Soles’. The idea being that people are able to slide off the soles of their shoes and replace it with another sole such as a trainer, a high heel or even an ice skate!
The girls began developing their concept back in October and continued to work on the project in their own time over the lockdown period. Unfortunately, the girls were unable to travel to London to deliver their pitch in person this year, but took part in a virtual delivery of their idea, competing against many other pupils from across the country.
Ultimately, the team didn’t win, but they did receive an award for ‘Exceptional teamwork during difficult times.’
