GCSE trip to the National Museum of Computing

5th April 2022

Our Year 10 and 11 computer science students had the exciting opportunity to learn about World War II Code-breaking and Modern Electronic Computing, as part of their visit to the National Museum of Computing in Bletchley.

Home to the world’s largest collection of working historic computers, students were able to take a guided tour of the Museum’s key exhibits including the World War II Code breaking machines, The Bombe, Tunny and Colossus; First Generation Computers; personal computers and retro games.

Providing valuable Key Stage 4 curricular links to Computer Science, the Museum’s Learning Programme also enabled students to explore the areas of Computer Programming and Artificial Intelligence through a series of interactive workshops, and to participate in group challenges to reinforce their understanding of computer technologies.
