A group of Year 10 Computer Science students were given the opportunity to go to the Think Computer Science Convention at Duxford Imperial War Museum. We were given different talks on how computers have evolved, how gaming is a big part of computer science and why hacking is not necessarily a bad thing. All three of which were very interesting.
We were able to program on the new BBC micro bit which is due to be released in 2016. We were also allowed to look around a science fair with stalls ranging from virtual reality and the possibility of playing a game and helping medical research.
