The evening of Thursday 6th December saw the annual Old Amersham Christmas Lights Ceremony and Late Night Shopping Event. Amersham Museum was amongst the businesses opening late for the occasion, offering visitors mulled apple juice, mince pies and a chance to see a selection of local 'finds'.

A small, enthusiastic group of Year 8 and 9 students were there to take full advantage of the opportunity to interview the target audience for their latest mobile technology project. Following on from the Year 8 and 9 Digital Day Project, they had been invited to contribute to an App design project being run by Amersham Museum and were able to discuss the assignment and their ideas with their client, Mrs Toettcher, the Museum Manager. It was an ideal time for the students to see the museum, meet some of the staff, trustees and visitors and explore their ideas.

The evening was a great success and we’ll keep you posted on how the project progresses.
