A fantastic wall display now greets students arriving for maths and computer science lessons. It features images and information about inspirational figures including 4th century mathematician Hypatia, Ada Lovelace, often regarded as the first computer programmer, Alan Turing, the mathematician and computer scientist widely considered the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence, and mathematician and broadcaster Hannah Fry, who delivered the 2019 Royal Institution Christmas lectures.
One of Woldingham’s aims is to offer students new experiences with the assurance that school is a safe place to make mistakes. Reinforcing this, the display includes a quote from Albert Einstein: “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
Thank you to WPSA (Woldingham Parent Staff Association) for supporting the Maths and Computer Science Departments in realising this vibrant and motivating exhibition.
