Computer Science trip to Tesla

L5 Computer Science students took a trip to Tesla today.

They got to talk to the assistant manager about the cars, focussing on the computer science behind the vehicles. They also got to have a look at the new model 3 - one of only 2 in the country! The students were even allowed to duck under the barriers and get inside it.

The students also took a Model X for a test drive so they could look at the technology that controls every aspect of the car. There was also a chance to let the car take control on the motorway, slowing down when other cars moved in front of us and changing lanes when the road was clear.

Overall, it was a great opportunity for the Computer Science students to see the real-world application of Computer Science.
