Girls in Coding Day
On Tuesday 10th November a group of Year 9 girls, who take Computer Science as a GCSE, travelled to Sophos to compete in an all-girls coding day. Sophos is one of the top three anti-virus companies in England.
When we arrived at Sophos we were divided into eight groups. Each group had girls from different schools and years. All groups competed against each other in four challenges in order to win an Apple watch. In our challenges we used Python to correct mistakes in a program and we also used Putty to hack into a website. At the end of the day we were all given advice for our future careers.
