Technology and engineering at Excited 2015!

 

Last Saturday, we were honoured to have been invited to the national Excited 2015 conference! Every year, a handful of schools and colleges are invited to demonstrate how they use technology in education. We were the youngest children among senior 5th and 6th classes and some secondary schools. But that didn’t hold us back. We created such a stir, every adult and child wanted us to show them our coding, programming and engineering skills! Even David Norris heard about us and was brought over to us for us to share our skills with him. He even tweeted about it afterwards!! What a day!
