Students from Curwen Primary and St Joseph’s kicked off the Autumn term visits to UBS with a fantastic day; showing their brilliant ability to work as a team, come up with creative ideas and present them with aplomb!

Problem Solving

With the challenge set to design and stock a ‘Snack Stop’ to provide the hard-workers at UBS with a somewhere to get a bite to eat or refresh themselves with a drink, students threw themselves into thinking about how to ensure they were providing the right offers. Using market research and team discussion the groups, including One Stop Snack Shop and Snack Attack, knew they were on the right track.

Using Imagination

A special guest from USB meant students knew that the pressure was on to ensure that their ideas were up to scratch for the final presentation – this meant plenty of creativity and innovation. From deals including ‘Buy a tea and a doughnut and get a second doughnut free’ to ‘Buy one get one free between 5 and 6pm’, these students were thinking about how to make their ideas attractive but ensuring a profit was made!

Sharing Ideas

The combined teams from Curwen and St Josephs, having only met a few hours previously, showed that they were able to work together brilliant with new people, and share their ideas effectively. The presentations were received extremely well by Sam, the judge from UBS, impressing him with their communication skills and added theatrics to ensure he didn’t forget their team!

Onwards and Upwards

Having worked with their UBS ‘colleagues’ for the day, and given excellent demonstration of the Challenge Skills in a professional environment, these students are in an excellent place to build on them further in their in-school projects.

We look forward to seeing what they will take on next!
