Barking & Dagenham College Inspiration Event

Year 9 & Y10 pupils were invited to Barking & Dagenham for their ‘Inspiration Event’. It was truly that! First our group had a talk by Amazon Web on careers in ICT and learnt about Cyber Security from Bluescreen BIT. Following this they had a session on programming the ‘obot’. This proved to be the most popular experience, beating the practice to read the news and seeing how green screen works. Other workshops included finding out about ‘Secret Cinema’and how to get involved film and media in many different capacities. Finally they were treated to a bit of psychology during the ‘Women into Stem’ seminar. When asked what they learnt from the visit, the students replied that they learnt that you can have a job idea and do it anywhere.
