The exhibition was set up for the whole day and the day went brilliantly. Gary gave a short introductory speech at the start of each session, of which there were five throughout the day. Then the children could use and explore the technology. Whilst lead by Computer Science, Maths and Science were also invited to attend to forge cross curricular links between subject disciplines.
The Code Show was also open at break and lunch. Even some children who did not pick Computer Science as a GCSE came along to see some of the equipment, which was fantastic. A Parents evening followed a couple of days later and a few of the parents commented on the great feedback their child had been saying at home.
Gary was great to work with, and he confidently and knowledgably discussed the technology with the students throughout the day. I look forward to another visit a year from now.
