Nadia (Senior Software Engineer), Dan (Software Engineer) and Dan (Project Manager) attended Moor Park to complete a drop down day with our Students on Thursday. This allowed our students to participate in two programming workshops focusing on Scratch (Year 7) and Python (Year 9), have a Question and Answer Session with the employees, and build upon the skills they learn in our Computing Curriculum.
