RAF run Code-breaking Challenge

We were delighted to welcome the RAF to UTC Reading on Tuesday 7 March for an exciting workshop with Year 10 students.

Students were divided into teams and given various tasks throughout the session testing their problem-solving, teamwork and code-breaking skills.

The teams were given assignments instructing them to work out how best to deal with humanitarian disasters, such as storm damage to remote island communities. They were required to solve problems in order to release codes, which then took them to the next step of the problem.

Our students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we hope to welcome the RAF back to run the session again in future.
