In the first four weeks, they have been a part of workshops and seminars on Design Thinking, Agile Software Development, Python programming, web app development, and databases, alongside skills sessions on teamwork, communication, trust, ethics and professionalism, and are all working together to complete real-world projects. 

The students come from a wide variety of work and academic backgrounds and include a mechanical engineer with extensive work experience to a recently graduated commerce student.  Other backgrounds include medicine, teaching, hotel management and customer service, and environment and society.

The cohort also includes a competitive sportswoman with qualifications in physiology and exercise science, an artisan baker with a BSci in Biological Science,  and an experienced research librarian.
