What an amazing day! 22 excited Digital Leaders with their parents and carers travelled to London for the day to take part in a presentation at the ExCel Centre. Lots of people had to get up early to catch the train or start their car journey. Everyone made sure they had some lunch before the show started at 12.45pm! We were all a bit nervous but soon got over it as the audience were very nice and clapped and cheered us Some Digital Leaders spoke on stage, others took photographs, some programmed Beebots and others used our new Spheros and Ollies. Our presentation didn’t seem to last long and soon it was the turn of the Digital Leaders from Myrtle Park Primary School, King Edward VI School and Lady Lumley’s School. Everyone did an amazing job and should be very proud of themselves. When everyone had finished their presentation, we took questions from the audience – some were a bit tricky to answer!
After the presentation the TTS stand spoke to us, saying what a great job we had done with the beebots and that they would like to visit us and bring us some new bluebots to test out – we can’t wait! Lots of people have also contacted us about starting Digital Leaders and their own radio station, so we are looking forward to keeping in contact with them.
Some of the Digital Leaders stayed at BETT for the rest of the day looking around all the stands and playing with the toys and equipment whilst others nipped off in to London to have a look around and visit museums.
Everyone agreed that it was a totally brilliant day and one that they wouldn’t forget in a long time. If you want to hear more about it, why not tune in to our Rec Road Radio station on Friday at 2.30pm or listen to our podcast.
