Keppie - Interaction project
KEPPIE HELPS ENTERPRISING YOUNGSTERS BUILD BRIGHT FUTURES
Work showcased to the Scottish Government’s Education Minister
21 January 2013 – Leading design practice Keppie met Michael Russell MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning, in East Ayrshire on Friday (18 January) to reveal the buzz being created around the Interaction project.
As part of their business and enterprise programmes, youngsters in the schools in East Ayrshire are learning skills and attitudes to help make them more ready for the world of work. As part of that brief Keppie Design came up with the Interaction project. It challenged pupils to design a moveable, weatherproof structure which could be used for enterprise events, such as selling products that had been designed and made in school.
This followed the Council’s launch of its innovative £1 million Business Enterprise Fund in 2011, promoting enterprise in education. The initiative is backed by local business leaders including Keppie’s design director David Ross and Scotland’s first billionaire, entrepreneur Sir Tom Hunter, who was born in New Cumnock.
In a presentation to Mr Russell, David Ross showcased the work of pupils in the nine schools across East Ayrshire on the Interaction initiative. David Ross commented: “It is fantastic that Mike Russell has come to East Ayrshire to see how successful the Interaction initiative and similar enterprise projects have been here. The pupils have been incredibly enthusiastic and it’s excellent to know that we’re helping to bring forward the next generation of design professionals.
“Communicating the difference that good design can have on everyday life and ensuring schools and businesses work closely together is key to this effort.”
Michael Russell MSP said: “Curriculum for Excellence is designed to give pupils the skills they need for learning, life and work. This initiative is a great example of how schools and employers can work together to help young people learn about the world of work, making their learning journey more interesting and preparing them for the start of their working life.”
Finalists from each of the nine secondary schools will compete in a Dragons’ Den style competition in East Ayrshire Council’s HQ on Friday 31 January, before a panel of judges including TV presenter Kirsty Wark and world-famous sculptor Andy Scott. Each design is being constructed in collaboration with a local business partner in order to bring the brief to life and make it as realistic as possible for the participating pupils.
