SGS Year 12 Computing group visit Bletchley Park and Cambridge

The year 12 Computing group visited Bletchley Park and Cambridge focusing on the theme of Computing - Past and future. We spent the day exploring the last 70 years of computing from the oldest working computer in the world (The WITCH) through to the latest mobile technology. The students even got the chance to code using the BBC B Micro. The classic from the 80’s.

In the second part of the trip we were hosted by three tech companies in Cambridge; Raspberry Pi makers of the most successful credit card sized computer in history, by an engineering company that develop a lot of technology for use within its, not for profit, housing trust business. Finally we visited Qualcomm a global $30 billion company that design and develops chips that will be in just about every mobile phone and games controller, ear bud, and other wireless device to find out what exciting, challenging, creative work engineers do all day and how SGS students might be a part of it.
