Conquering Programming at Thorpe Park
29th June 2018
This term, the Computing and Business Department organised an educational trip to Thorpe Park for GCSE students.
Students were given the chance to not only take a ride on the wild side but also on the wired side, where they were challenged and inspired!
The abstract concept that students often find tricky to grasp in class were conquered through real-life hands-on experiences. Students were overwhelmed with the sheer amount of computing surrounding them!
From the ticket scanning system to the mechanisms and programming surrounding the rides.
Students took part in an educational workshop that exposed them to virtual reality and image manipulation, which are just few of the things incorporated into some of the rides at Thorpe Park.
