The Building Schools for the Future programme in Hull gave school leaders an opportunity to redefine education for nearly 12,000 students. That delivery team is now working with partners to build a legacy for the entire city, borne out of an original pledge to connect communities, raise aspirations and support digital skills to bring about positive change.
Our first gateway was installed and tested on a city centre rooftop in February, and has been receiving data ever since. The longest transmission so far was from a sensor node located across the Humber - a whopping 22.61km away.
Look out for further gateways going live across the city in the coming weeks.
Ideas and possibilities. Connected Hull is an inclusive programme of digital opportunities, with education at it’s core, and an intention to become a catalyst for innovation across the city. Project ideas will emerge over time as communities connect and we share smart citizenship through the blog.
