A group of second-year students from Fife College have won the first ever KYOCodes schools coding competition. KYOCERA received entries from 22 schools and colleges across the UK.
Launched at the Bett Show in January, entrants were tasked with designing a brand new app, powered by HyPAS. The winning app needed to meet a real business challenge.
The app developed by Keir Nellyer, Liam Dales and Jack Vincent combines scanning with social media and was awarded a score of 129 out of 150 by the judges, who agreed unanimously that theirs was the most impressive entry.
Prizes for the winning team, worth around £4,000, include an ECOSYS 2640idw multifunctional printer, MakerBot Replicator Mini+ 3D printer and accreditation as an approved KYOCERA app developer.
