We were given a brief history of coding through the 1970s, 80s and 90s , explaining how developments have brought us the technology we use today. Women in STEM was a big topic and even the coding machine that Margaret Hamilton used to develop the on-board flight software for NASA’s Apollo program was also on display.
Students had the opportunity to test and explore various coding and communication methods, retro video game consoles and more. Some even had the chance to ride in one of the first models of the electric car. There was even a chance to read an original piece of German code from Bletchley that had been cracked by the infamous Enigma machine.
We would like to thank FOPHS who kindly funded this event.
