Big Bang North West 2019: Network Rail – An Ozobot Experience & More!
Their stand will be packed but we’re most excited about their awesome Ozobots.
These award-winning robots are designed specifically for the next generation of creators. They can be coded two ways: online with OzoBlockly and screen-free with Color Codes. An inspirational way for young minds to go from consuming technology to creating it… and they’re so much fun!
The purpose of Network Rail is to own, operate, and maintain the UK’s rail infrastructure – managing the tracks, land, property, bridges, tunnels, signals, stations and communications.
At The Big Bang North West you can find out what it takes to ensure over 4.5 million people get to their destination safely every day!
