Working with schools

Working with schools

We are keen to motivate young people, across age groups and of all genders, to study computer science.

We run an extensive programme of activities with schools to promote interest in the field of computer science.

We can arrange a lecture on cutting-edge research into computing or what it’s like for undergraduates to study. We can also organise practical activities, such as:

  • Workshops for Years 5-6 on Lego Mindstorms Robotics.
  • Workshops for Years 7-9 on Building Your Own Internet.
  • Talks for sixth formers on studying Computer Science at university.
  • Taster sessions for all ages on the capabilities of computers, as well as The Internet of Things.
