AppVenture - Fostering the Maker Mindset
Finding beauty in the vastness of data is what co-founders of Appventure – a computing studies interest group - Wayne Tee (Year 6) and Ambrose Chua (Year 5) along with a coterie of students indulge in. Often regarded as the oracle on computing studies by his peers, Wayne Tee feels that interest groups allow like-minded people to pursue ambitious projects – projects beyond the scope of an individual.
Two significant projects developed solely by AppVenture are the Interactive Display Project and the AppVenture Website. The Interactive Display Project culminated with an installation of a touchscreen android display at the main entrance of NUS High. The display includes features such as an interactive campus map and a “Places of Interest” app. The AppVenture website is a platform built to showcase the work of our CS students. Projects range from small utility apps to competition-winning projects. An interesting feature, the ‘requests page’ allows students, staff and even non-profit organisations to share their needs and ideas, allowing AppVenture to connect CS students with the community.
Says Ambrose, “I want AppVenture to evolve into a community that will leave a lasting impression on the lives of all students. When AppVenture members come back to NUS High years later, they can be proud of their work.”
With their unhinged imaginations and quiet determination, our CS students are translating ideas into real possibilities one App at a time.
