School of Computing & Toyota Connected Europe Coding challenge

12 Computer Science students from year 7, 9 and 10 took part in a School of Coding and Toyota Connected Europe coding challenge at the office of Toyota Connected in St Pancras. The Toyota Connected CEO, the Chief Engineer and Head Designer took time from their day to give a brief talk to students about their progression into their roles and the opportunities open to students interested in pursuing a career in computing and Technology.  

Students worked with three ‘School of Coding’ trainers, impressing them with their team work, problem solving and creative thinking skills.  They were commended for  their dedication and creativity and one of the trainers said that our students ‘out smarted the trainer’!  

Toyota Connected Europe were so impressed with Maria Fidelis students' passion, commitment and excellent conduct, they have offered to design another event just for us with a focus on ‘design, problem solving and organisational thinking’. The Computer Science department is very excited about this developing partnership and we aim to follow up the invitation in the summer term.
