Finn Harland and Riley Mote from Tawa Intermediate School attended Capital E for a day to find out what it’s really like to work in the creative technology industry. After taking a careers quiz online along with their classmates from Room 10, the two future app and game designers spent time with our OnTV and MediaLab tutors to get a closer look at what’s really involved.
“I didn’t expect it [MediaLab] to look like this. I thought there would be just a couple of computers or something. I really like this tablet so I can draw my animations” says Riley.
I like that I can see my work in this programme [2D Animation] . You get to see all your hard work come up on the screen” says Finn.
After the jam-packed day, the two boys will go back to school to create a PowerPoint presentation to show what they did for their parents and peers.
“Ideally I’d like to help people do animation and coding” says Riley.
The Capital E team had a great time showing Riley and Finn around our digital studios. We look forward to seeing them come back again soon.
