Year 9 students visit Bletchley Park!

This week a group of 40 Year 9 students visited The National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park. It was enlightening to see exactly how computers have evolved, from the very first hand – wound calculator to the present day. The main attraction was the Colossus – one of the first computers ever made that was used in World War 2. We got to see famous computers such as W.I.T.C.H, the oldest original digital computer, along with explanations on how they worked, why they were built and got a demonstration of them. We also had a go at doing some coding of our own crating a Snake game using BBC computers! This is a great trip to go on if you’re thinking of doing Computer Science for GCSE, or if you just want to learn things about computers and have a good time!
