Being creative and thinking about the future was the order of the day recently as KCOM joined other local businesses in supporting two ‘Little Big Bang’ events at Sirius Academy.

The half day events, held at Sirius Academy North and Sirius Academy West, saw businesses running workshops to help year nine and 10 students learn about different aspects of science, engineering and technology.

Three volunteers ran KCOM’s activity which challenged students to use technology to create a house of the future.

Simon Lucas, IT Service Control and Assurance Manager at KCOM, said: “Our activity was based around using technology to create a house of the future. Within that challenge, we asked the students how they could improve security, reduce costs, improve efficiency, improve their health and also their leisure and entertainment time.

“They came up with some great ideas, such as a smart fridge that recommends meal choices depending on its contents and your mood, voice recognition TV, and a voice recognition bath to control temperature and flow.

“It was great to see the students thinking outside the box and maybe some of their ideas will become a reality in the future.”
