A team from Hull University beat out nine others to win the UK prize in the fifth annual Imagine Cup Software Design Challenge. ‘The Seedlings’, as they call themselves, will now head for Seoul to represent the UK in the international competition sponsored by BT, Capgemini and HP. The team’s winning application is called First Programme Language (FPL) and is designed to develop young children’s problem solving skills through the teaching of simple programming concepts. According to the competition's main sponsors, Microsoft, FPL can be adapted to suit different kinds of application. Good luck to the team in its efforts to help young minds tun to programming early.
