On Tuesday 31 October eight of our Year 9 G&T students attended the launch of the Programming challenge. The students were given a very broad brief, with the aim being to create a piece of software using Python software to help students in our school with their studies. No pressure!
The two teams will have to give a short presentation on their ideas behind the software and how it works at the finals day in December 2017. On the day a Project manager from Farnborough International gave the students insightful presentation on how he puts together the Farnborough Air Show and the process he has to go through with his team to create a successful event. It was fascinating and prompted a good deal of discussion amongst Yateley students on how to achieve such a complex task.
Yateley have two teams entered into the challenge and we look forward to what the finished product will be ready for December-17… watch this space!
