Computing Club Successes

A team of three year 9 students recently designed an interactive hoodie which measures and displays air pollution as part of the PA consulting Raspberry Pi competition 2022.  They received praise from the judges for their design and were awareded an innovation certificate. 
Also, eight year 8/9 students represented the school at Sheffield Hallam University for the regional heats of the EEP Robotics Challenge last week.  This is a national competition sponsored by the RAF, Network Rail and Engineering UK.  After a grueling day, and a spectacular presentation to the judges by three of our team, we brought home the Design Award 
Well done everyone!
