Pupils attend STEM summer courses

Over the summer holidays some of our Year 11 (now Year 12) Computer Science students attended STEM courses organised by the Smallpeice Trust.

CyberFirst Futures - University of Portsmouth: 31 July - 4 August 2017

“We looked at different ways of protecting yourself from cyber attackers and other connected things, for example, how your internet traffic is secured to stop people looking at it. To increase our understanding of how to protect these things, we looked at how they work, so how your devices connect to the internet and load up websites etc. A part of the course that I found particularly interesting was when we looked at how the attackers would attempt to hack you because we got to infect other people’s computers with viruses and control them!” Dylan (and Harry) Drew (12King)

CyberFirst Futures - University of Portsmouth: 14 - 18 August 2017

"I'd had an interest in cyber security before, but this course gave me a much clearer understanding of what was involved. With some hands-on activities and various speakers from the field, I learnt how many skills were involved such as networking, coding and even psychology. CyberFirst gives an excellent introduction to cyber security and gave me many things to research more." Adam Slater (12Andrewes)

Rail Solutions Engineering - University of Birmingham: 17 - 20 July 2017

"I decided to go on this course as I had a general interest in engineering. It was engaging and interesting throughout with a mixture of lectures, project time and fun evening activities. Some presentations were given by university lecturers, giving a taste of university life while others were given by professionals working in industry, relating what we were learning to real life applications. The group project was to design and build a Lego train to autonomously keep at the right speed along a track while performing different actions. It was overall a great insight into engineering and careers in the railways." Adam Slater (12Andrewes)

All courses were run by the Smallpeice Trust (https://www.smallpeicetrust.org.uk). CyberFirst was sponsored by the NCSC.
