Some of Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor's Computer Science and Physics students recently had the opportunity to attend MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) challenge and extension virtual sessions.

The university has played a key role in the development of many aspects of modern science, engineering, mathematics and technology, and is known for innovation and academic strength. It is often considered one of the best universities in the world.

The sessions were held to challenge and expand the students in the fields of Computer Science and Physics.

Huw Hughes, a Computer Science lecturer at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor, said.

"This kind of opportunity is invaluable to our students. Out of the MIT laboratories came the technology for creating the world wide web, voice recognition technology and digital circuit technology. Not to mention the hundreds, if not thousands of important techniques and theories in all areas of computer and social sciences. "

Huw Hughes added.

"Over a series of sessions, our students had the opportunity to learn more about Astrophysics and Artificial Intelligence from some of the leading scientists in these fields."

"Offering these kinds of experiences to our students is central to the work of Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor, and we are delighted that we are able to offer these kinds of experiences to our students. To name just four MIT alumni, Buzz Aldrin, Ronald McNair, Neil Armstorng and Ilene Gordon, the message is clear to CMD students, the future is in your hands, and yes, everything is possible."
