Computing trip – San-Francisco 2016

The first computing trip to San Francisco has been a huge success and they all arrived safely back into Manchester airport on Saturday the 29th October. It has been an extremely busy week visiting all the local sights; Alcatraz, bike ride over the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito, Fisherman’s Wharf, NASA, Stanford University, Computer History Museum, Tech Museum of Innovation, cable car ride, Lombard Street and Coit tower. We also managed to fit in a trip to Westfield Shopping centre, Stanford Shopping centre and Macy’s; you can’t visit America without a visit to the shops.

The girls enjoyed visiting Google and Microsoft and were inspired by the talks given by four women who work at Microsoft; they were also treated to a free lunch at both!

The behaviour of the girls was fabulous throughout the week.

A massive thank-you to Mr. Osborne, Mrs. Barrow and Mrs. Carradus for their hard work and good humour. A special mention to Mr. Osborne for his excellent map reading.
