UK Space Agency

On Saturday 5th November Daisy Doyle and Megan Reed were invited to York University, by the UK Space Agency, to do a presentation on their winning Big Bang Project. The girls have spent the past two years teaching themselves how to code and creating a reaction time game on a Raspberry Pi. Their goal was to investigate whether playing a memory and reaction time game could improve someone’s reaction time in real life.

He met the girls at the conference and asked them all about it! “
