Computing @Bristol

On Saturday 1/2/14 4 students from the GCSE Computing group travelled to Bristol to

Digimakerssign

attend the ‘Digimaker’ event that was run by the University of Bristol Department of Computer Science and Engineering @Bristol.  We booked onto a series of workshops involving using the Raspberry Pi mini computer and programming with Python.  Both of which are directly related to the GCSE Computing course.

Thank you to the undergraduate students from the University of Bristol for organising such a fantastic day.
