Yesterday a small group of us visited the Bett education technology show at ExCeL London alongside children from Helmdon and Southfields. This annual show brings leading tech companies and edtech startups together and was great fun and very interesting for all of us.
The children got to try out VR headsets, micro:bit and raspberry pi related robotics, educational games and apps as well as an eye testing machine and 3D printing technology. As an unexpected bonus we also got to meet author and illustrator Cressida Cowell. The children had a photo taken with her as well as getting a personalised autograph and illustration from her.
A big thankyou to Harvey Sharman for organising and coordinating our day at the show, it was a great experience for all of us.
