SCHOOLS from across Cambridgeshire were welcomed to King’s Ely Junior last week to take part in an exciting and innovative computer festival.

King’s Ely teamed up with Intel and the Tablet Academy to host a free workshop for teachers and students to explore computing using Intel powered mobile devices as a tool to facilitate learning in a fun and engaging way.

Activities covered a range of computing activities, such as programming a games controller, measuring objects using the tablet camera and programming a robot around an obstacle course.

Nigel Ovens, Head of ICT and Computing at King’s Ely Junior, commented: “The students enjoyed trying all the different options on display and they were focused and truly absorbed in each of the activities.”

Senior’s Head of ICT, Marc Hawes, added: “It was wonderful to see how engaged the pupils were in the activities, which demonstrated programming is not only confined to the desktop.”
