By the end of the week they will have built their own websites, complete with graphics and hyperlinks to other areas on the Internet. They will also have programmed an NXT LEGO robot to perform various tasks and created their own simple smart phone application using App Inventor. The Summer School enables pupils to sample a range of technology areas in a helpful and informal setting, prior to embarking on a future course of study.
