Discovery Zone 2018

Discovery Zone 2018

Discovery Zone is a highlight of the Leeds Festival of Science that gives local Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils the opportunity for hands-on experiences of the research at the University of Leeds. Pupils are taken on a tour of activities where we showed them our Dr Digital stall. Here, we explained what algorithms are, how they work and how we are using them to answer the questions posed in the Comprehensive Patient Records project.

Judging by the pupils’ votes, it seems they left as happy programmers and budding researchers.
