Apptastic Competition Winner - Congratulations to Ahmed Hassen

25 Jan 2021,

Apptastic Competition Winner - 2020


Ahmed Hassan (a year 11 student at University Academy Keighley) who is visually impaired and uses Braille, has won a prize in a national Science competition. The Apptastic competition was organised by VICTA (VICTA is a national charity that provides support to children and young adults from 0 to 29 who are blind or partially sighted and their families.), Microsoft and the City University of London. Ahmed won his prize in the ‘most impactful’ category of the competition.

Following his competition success, Ahmed has been informed that, ‘Microsoft were so impressed, they would like to schedule a 1:1 video call with him to discuss the app idea with one of the technicians.’ Ahmed’s idea was for an app called ‘Wardit’ which would help people, visually impaired (and sighted people too), to navigate around a hospital and find the correct department or ward.

Ahmed is interested in pursuing a career in science, medicine or technology and this could be an important step to achieving that.
