USING A COMPUTER TO CRACK A NUT
An interactive CD-ROM to help children understand nut allergies has helped University of Lincolnshire & Humberside student Lucy Harding (pictured) gain a first-class honours degree.
July’s graduation ceremony will also be a first for BA (Hons) Interactive Design as it will be the first time students have graduated from the course. Lucy will be one of several students graduating with first-class honours.
The Interactive Design student, who lives on Anlaby Road, Hull, devoted much of the last year to developing the CD-ROM, just one of the projects she submitted for her final assessment.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to get a first,” said Lucy, who is originally from Brockfield, near York. “It’s been a lot of hard work but it was definitely all worthwhile.”
The CD-ROM was Lucy’s individual project but she also worked with fellow students on a group project to design an interactive interface for the BBC show ‘Top of the Pops 2’. Lucy is hoping to pursue a career creating multi-media CD-Roms for children.
Group members Mike Wrigley from Derbyshire and Greek student Konstantinos Papakostas also gained first class degrees.
“I’m hoping to find work publishing CD-Roms in the London area,” said Mike, who currently lives on Wright Street in Hull. His individual project involved creating sound in a 3-D environment.
