This term The Studio were invited to compete in the Sound City App Challenge alongside seven other UK institutions, placing our students head to head with development teams from across the country. The competition required student teams to develop an innovative concept for a mobile application, with the winning idea receiving support to enable the team to bring their concept to life. With teams entering from numerous universities, the competition was extremely high. As always our students did us proud, with our final entry securing second place overall.
The brains behind our winning entry was year 12 student Wade Woods Simon, who created the concept for an app which allows users to send short music clips to friends. Founder of Sound City, Mr Pichilingi, expressed his ongoing interest in The Studio explaining;
“Through the Sound City App Challenge, we’re hoping to be able to find the new tech innovators of tomorrow from those students taking part. We’re extremely pleased that The Studio are involved as we believe that they are developing the next generation of entrepreneurs with the very best ideas.”
Aside from the App Challenge, Liverpool Sound City has provided our students with a wealth of opportunities to get involved.
Year 12 student Peter Lang volunteered at the three day festival, working alongside industry experts and setting a great example for students from The Studio.
