Kids get into the Flow

Children explored some of the latest technology in Flow’s Tech Kids inaugural project this month.

The project, which launched Feb. 6, aims to help children ages 4-9 explore the world of technology with hands-on experiences under the supervision of Flow’s technological experts.

The event took place at the Flow Galleria Store on Seven Mile Beach. The children immersed themselves in two hours of fun, games and entertainment – and some competition.

At the event, Josh Taylor, 9, emerged as the winner with the highest score in the popular game app Subway Surfers.

As Valentine’s Day was around the corner, the children were also asked to create an e-Valentine’s card using the tablet they were provided. The final designs by each child was then posted on Flow Cayman’s Facebook page.

The design with the most likes/votes from fans, friends and family favored the winner and recipient of the grand prize. Margaret Dumaguing, 4, had the most likes for her design.

“This type of event will be expanded in the future to involve more children at our Flow stores,” said Julie Hutton, Flow’s head of marketing.

“We believe it’s a great way to introduce children to the world of technology and it’s also an opportunity to educate parents about the need for supervision as our children navigate the online world.”
