The ACE Project Space is proud to congratulate our resident Met students from Maples Collegiate for winning the top prize for the prestigious Ken Spencer Awards! The first place prize winners will share in the $7,000 award for their work with entrepreneurs in residence at the North Forge Technology Enterprise and ACE Project Space as well as Maples Collegiate.
Learning While Building Real-World Solutions
One key project the students are working on is an exhibition management system for Maples Collegiate. Using BubbleApps, a low-code application development solution, the students are creating an application that families, students, and advisors can use to schedule student exhibitions happening within the Met program. Students learn important skills such as working in an Agile project management environment, object-oriented design, UX/UI patterns and best practices, testing and quality assurance, problem solving, logical thinking, as well as teamwork.
