The innovative thinking, skill and generosity of Year 10 student, Jesaiah Creek, provides a much-needed reminder to all of us that the future is in good hands.
Jesaiah recently won Apple’s Swift Student Challenge for his exceptional achievements in designing the ‘PocketSax’ App, which allows users to play the Saxophone. His invention provides an opportunity for users to play a musical instrument they may be unable to afford to purchase. The App has noise control functionality and supports those with a disability or hearing impairment.
The idea for the PocketSax App was ignited when Jesaiah presented a Learning to Learn project in Middle School. Its matured form is a testament to his creative focus and determination.
As part of his prize, Jesaiah received a year-long subscription to Apple’s prestigious Developer Program, which will serve to further develop his coding skills.
Jesaiah generously shares his coding expertise and enthusiasm with others at a lunch time student group.
Congratulations to Jesaiah for using skills in STEM to enrich the lives of others and pave the way to greater innovation in the future.
