Our initial funding from the Mayor of London’s, London Schools Excellence Fund enabled us to deliver a London-based programme of activity that supported 9,000 pupils and 1,000 teachers across 127 schools. 100% of participating teachers both running and attending workshops said that they improved knowledge and confidence in teaching computing, and schools reported that Digital Schoolhouse workshops significantly raised educational attainment amongst participating children – equally across boys and girls.
The Highgate Wood Digital Schoolhouse has for the past five months been working with their feeder schools on the Apps for Good programme. The Apps for Good programme involves pupils working as part of a team to devise an idea for a mobile application that solves a problem. The programme develops pupils business, enterprise, and ICT and computer science skills.
The Big Bang fair will be taking place from Wednesday 16th March to Saturday 19th March this year. It is the UK's largest celebration of STEM subjects, and the Digital Schoolhouse is proud to announce its support and presence at the show.
