Our School Featured On BBC Midlands Today

President Kennedy School was the first school in Coventry to sign up to an event run by TeenTech, an organisation led by BBC Tomorrow’s World’s presenter, Maggie Philbin. At each TeenTech event, over 120 scientists, technologists and engineers bring along their enthusiasm and their very latest technology in a mission to wow students and encourage them to think about career choices they never knew existed.
Maggie, joined a science class and ran an exercise testing and challenging attitudes towards careers in science and technology. Earlier that day, students worked with local companies Agant and Pyuda designing iphone apps and learning about the career opportunities available in the ICT industry.
President Kennedy School is unusual, because our commitment to building brighter futures for our students starts as soon as they arrive at The Bridge. Last week, our Year 9 students were building and testing robots with ‘Tomorrow’s Engineers’ and a group of Year 8 students will attend the TeenTech event at the Ricoh Arena on 19th October.
