Software giant hands $25,000 to local village school

Sunday, March 23rd 2014 08:00

A local primary school's won funding from IT giant Microsoft to carry out an idea it's had to educate pupils in technology and international business.

Broadclyst Primary came up with the Global Enterprise Challenge, in which students from around the world will use the latest communications to work together running an international company.

They had to do a Dragons Den style pitch to the Microsoft judges at a forum in Barcelona - and won them over when two pupils spoke to them from Devon via a live video link.

The school has been awarded 25 thousand dollars to make the project happen.
