Computer Science Pupils Visit The Centre For Computing History
On Wednesday 17 May, 43 Year 9 and 10 pupils from Princethorpe College visited the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge.
As part of the day the pupils got to take part in taught sessions on controlling physical devices using Python code and 'The Megaprocessor' in support of their GCSE Computer Science studies. They also had chance to look around the museum and to have hands of experience of a wide range of computers going back to the 1960s. Head of Computer Science, Adam Depledge, said, “This was a really valuable experience for the pupils which will not only help them with their studies directly but also give them a deeper appreciated of the history of the topics they are learning.”
