Members of the School Lego Robotics Team Visit Parliament
On Monday 5 November, 4 students were accompanied by Ms Man and Ms Raspudic to the Houses of Parliament by Stephen Metcalfe MP on behalf of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee with Engineering UK to showcase their Lego Robot work and attend a canape reception.
The students had a wonderful time, not only showcasing their hard work but also mingling with influential people from within the engineering field as well as members of both the House of Lords and House of Commons. The girls stated that this has certainly made them want to work in the computing and engineering field.
As part of the ICT enrichment programme, we entered 45 students from across years 7-11 into the Bebras Computing Challenge introduces computational thinking to students.
It is organised in over 40 countries and designed to get students all over the world excited about computing, the results of which were published today.
Results are as follows:
Best in school in the 12-14 age category:

All 3 students also achieved a top 10% Bebras score in their age group and have been invited to participate in the TCS Oxford Computing Challenge in early March.
