计算机科学专业的学生在2019年的urdd eisteddfod上积极参与互动

2019年6月7日

Visitors to the Urdd Eisteddfod enjoyed a variety of fun-filled activities from the world of technology with staff and student STEM Ambassadors from the School of Computer Science & Informatics.

从5月27日 - 6月1日,urdd eisteddfod文学,音乐和表演艺术节吸引了超过90,000名与会者,其中包括15,000名年轻人,来到加的夫湾。

A team from the School of Computer Science & Informatics offered their time and enthusiasm to engage event-goers with a range of inspiring, family-friendly games and challenges that explored the key concepts of Computer Science and computational thinking.

人 of all ages flocked to the stand in the Science & Technology Pavilion to enjoy the range of activities on offer. These included many unplugged activities, the building of  interactive robotic creations using Lego Mindstorms, programming block-based visuals using Scratch and experiencing an immersive environment through Virtual Reality (VR) goggles.

cheryl mcnamee-brittain,计算机科学和信息学院的学校和大学联络官说:“我们很高兴参加2019年的urdd eisteddfod。我们希望我们帮助那些访问过的人了解计算机系统和计算思维的概念,并在此过程中获得了一些乐趣。这些是每个人的重要技能,不仅仅是计算机科学家,我们希望让所有年龄段的人更容易获得它们。“

Anastasia Ugaste, STEM Ambassador at the School of Computer Science & Informatics, said: “I really enjoyed introducing young visitors to VR glasses and Mindstorm robots. Their excitement towards programming is so encouraging and allows us to create more interesting workshops. Working and exchanging knowledge with people from different departments and even Universities throughout the event was fascinating.”

整个一天,团队展示了ag8通过technocamps计划提供的游乐场计算程序的活动。

technocamps是一个涉及威尔士七所大学的项目,旨在激励和吸引11-19岁的年轻人使用计算机科学。该计划已为超过35,000名威尔士年轻人提供超过1500个研讨会,包括编程,应用程序开发,游戏开发和机器人技术。

ag8在加的夫地区组织定期的计算思维和基于编程的研讨会。请联系cheryl mcnamee-brittain或catherine teehan博士了解更多信息。
