'Girls in IT': Huxlow students attend an inspiration event at Barclaycard, Northampton

On Tuesday 10th November 2015, a group of nine girls from Years 8 and 9 who have a specific interest in IT were invited to Barclaycard, Northampton for an inspiration event, ‘Girls in IT’.

The day consisted of a seminar with a lecturer from John Moores University, followed by three breakout sessions which covered designing technology for the future, fault finding for online banking and programming robots. There were plenty of prizes to be won and all the girls got fully involved in every activity.

Hopefully some of these girls will choose ICT as a GCSE option and maybe even a career.
