Dragons' Den goes back to school - the outcome
Head of Interactive, Radio 3
Earlier this month, Sam Lewens, Dragons' Den executive producer, blogged here about the an outreach project called Dragons' Den Goes Back to School. The project is a collaboration between the producers and BBC North. Four schools from the North of England - from Bolton, Bradford, Lincoln and Sunderland - were set a challenge by the dragons and came into the den to present their responses. Two of the schools were presented with awards - for best idea and best pitch. The programme won't be shown on the TV so here's your chance to get a sense of the excitement for the children who joined in.
Satnaam, Mohameen and Amaan from Laisterdyke Business and Enterprise College in Bradford with Duncan Bannatyne and Deborah Meaden. The school's team entered the Dragons' Den with a pitch for a free student magazine called 'Brain Freeze' which shares revision tips and exam advice for secondary school pupils.
Oliver, Abigail and Aimee from Lincoln Castle Academy won 'Best Idea' for their robust business plan to refurbish old computers and help get the over-50s online. Pictured here with Dragons, Duncan Bannatyne and Deborah Meaden.
