Reasons to Visit
Meet An App Developer
Your students will learn about the process of developing apps and take a look at some of the current top apps. The talk will also focus on the importance of user experience. The session will culminate in an exercise where your learners will do some of the planning around how they would approach making an app. As a young start-up, the company has already won numerous awards from organisations such as The RSA and Deloitte.
National Museum of Computing
The museum enables visitors to follow the development of computing from the ultra-secret pioneering efforts of the 1940s through the mainframes of the 1960s and 1970s, and the rise of personal computing in the 1980s. New working exhibits are regularly unveiled and the public can already view a rebuilt and fully operational Colossus.
The National Museum of Computing is located outside London at Bletchley Park. If staying in London you will either need a coach to visit the museum or take a 45 minute train ride from London Euston.
The science museum houses exhibits on computing and ICT with a collection representing how the storage, manipulation and communication of information have become fundamental to human existence. These collections cover electronics, information and computing, mechanical computing, media technologies, networks including the internet, printing, radio, satellites, sound reproduction, software and telephony.
Warner Bros. Studio Tours - Harry Potter
Go behind-the-scenes in the making of Harry Potter and see how many things the camera never showed. See how technology and animatronics played a key role in creating the effects on film. The studio tour provides a unique showcase of the extraordinary British artistry, technology and talent that went into making one of the most successful film franchises.
