About this day

Computer Science in Action is the ultimate enrichment day for Key Stage 5 computer science students.  In five lively sessions experts from academia and industry will explore topics that complement the computer science curriculum. These sessions will motivate students to excel and give them ideas about future careers. An additional talk on examination success will equip students with the tools to succeed, and each student will receive a revision guide to take home.

We are delighted to be bringing Computer Science in Action to the Midlands in 2019 so that we can inspire more students than ever before.
