Get Set Girls Event at Tewkesbury Friday 6th May

Fifteen Year 8 girls went to Tewkesbury School last Friday to take part in a “Smart City” inspired Engineering Day to encourage more girls to participate in scientific subjects and careers.

The girls, along with girls from several other Secondary schools, learnt to how to write python script to instruct Minecraft to build a Smart City and also use script to instruct Arduino traffic lights systems. The girls enjoyed the challenge of unfamiliar tasks and all rose to the new challenges presented to them.

Sonique, Daisy, Neicha and Kim worked especially hard and were rewarded with certificates for their work on the traffic lights task.
