Computer Generated Enterprise

mediumblue

Summary

Liverpool's status as European Capital of Culture 2008 is celebrated as a group of Year 11 pupils create a computer game for a school enterprise project.

The pupils, from St Margaret's Church of England High School, formulate an idea for the game, called Streets of Culture, based on a motor race around the city's most famous cultural landmarks.

They team up with Jaguar - a company based a mile from the school - who provide them with computer models and an insight into how cars are designed and manufactured.

They also spend a day at Liverpool Hope University to finalise developing the project, and have their designs and images generated into a game by a local software development company.

Inspired by the project, St Margaret's now want to produce another game in partnership with up to 10 other schools in Liverpool.
