GCSE ICT group gear up for exams with National Media Museum visit

Information Computer Technology pupils at Rydal Penrhos learnt more about the origins of the internet on a recent trip.

The GCSE group paid a visit to the National Museum of Media, Film and Television in Bradford on Monday, February 13, which was set-up to enhance their learning ahead of exam season.

The principal purpose was to visit the special exhibition on the Internet, which traced its development, looked at different technologies surrounding the global phenomenon and examined the impact on business and social life.

This trip will serve as a huge benefit as half of their examination paper next month will be based around “Internet technologies and their impact”.

During the visit pupils also got to visit the exhibition on the development and history of television, which please department head Mike Farnell, who said: “I particularly enjoyed seeing my childhood memories in one place where Zippy and George sat alongside original Thunderbirds puppets.”

The museum itself was built to explore the science and culture of light and sound technologies and their impact on our lives, in addition to inspiring the scientists and engineers of the future.
