National Museum of Computing Visit

Year 9 computing students have visited the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park.

This was an opportunity for students to gain an insight in to how computer technology has developed from the 1940's right up to the present day.

 Whilst at the museum, students saw Colossus, the world's first electronic computer and was used to decipher German ciphers in World War II and the WITCH machine which is the world's oldest original working digital computer.

 Students also looked at how game's consoles were developed and got to play on some retro games! The also had a go at coding a game on an old BBC Computer.

 It was a fantastic day which really gave students context to what they have been learning in lessons.
