The Second National SEK Lab Junior Final was held in the Almagro building of University Camilo José Cela, where different students presented their projects promoted by the SEK schools in the field of entrepreneurship and the development of ideas. The aim of the training programme is to foster and encourage entrepreneurship among students from an early age.
The winning project was the HomeHair app, created by a group of students from year three ESO at SEK-El Castillo, which consists of a hairdressing and aesthetic home service that offers an alternative to all people who cannot travel, providing a convenient and accessible service in their homes.
These students were awarded with the creation of a website, a Crowfunding campaign to finance HomeHair, a marketing and communications campaign to give them media coverage and a mentor to help them and guide them during the development of their application.
The second finalist, also led by year three ESO and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme students at SEK-El Castillo, presented the LEAH project (Linking Education and Health). It is an app that offers an academic experience to hospitalised children, transferring an interactive and realistic class experience to the hospital. Its main objective is to link education and health through an adapted and improved video call system adapted and improved with a social focus.
Finally, the third finalist was Aiming Goals, created by students from year one of Secondary Education at SEK-Ciudalcampo and specially designed for NGOs in developing countries. This project had its origin in a trip the students took to India, after which they developed an NFC bracelet to edit medical information necessary to reduce the response times to health emergencies.
