It will be set up in the library from 4-7pm on Wednesday 21st & 2.30-6pm on Thursday 22nd for you to visit before or after your meetings.

Year 6 Girls Visit to Google HQ
SPARK STEM is a bespoke programme created by Kingston Academy for the local community. It aims to open pupils eyes to fabulous opportunities within the field of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics.
Our girls thoroughly enjoyed their trip to London this week They started the day with a quiz on Google, followed by a short presentation on computer programming and coding, including why careers in computer science rock!
They also enjoyed an activity based on coding where they programmed a SPHERO ROBOT to navigate its path on a grid and even managed to give it a voice. A tour around some of Google's cool office building ending with a Q & A session where our girls really took on the opportunity to ask some great questions.
