Huge congratulations to Lucy in Year 13 who has been awarded an Anne-Marie Imafidon Scholarship for Women in Technology (WIT) by Durham University.
Lucy was asked to produce a short video on how computer science makes a positive contribution to society. The university confirmed the quality of the submissions they received were of a very high standard, however Lucy's submission was deemed excellent.
The scholarship means Lucy will take up the role of 'Student Ambassador' for Durham University, which will involve:
• Creating a student blog around her experience of studying computer science
• Attending occasional open days/events to promote the department
• Providing a case study for use on the pepartmental website
• Supporting the department’s social media activity around the Women in Tech programme and wider initiatives
• Consenting to the use of her video submission for use on the website and social media channels
