Ri Masterclasses in Computer Science

Week Six instructions – for 2 Nov 2019

Same road (Bancroft Road), new venue (“SEMS”).
We are in the School of Engineering and Materials Science (SEMS) which is the first building on the left as you turn into Bancroft Road from Mile End Road.

This is a Google Streetview map showing the entrance to SEMS, just to the right of the blue plaque with the name of the building. Please come inside (ideally after 9.30am as there’s not a lot of room to wait in) and you’ll be collected or sent through by the porter at 9.45am-ish, for registration before our final session at 10am.

You’ll be following the signs for G27. Everything (room, gents and ladies loos) is on the ground floor.

Masterclass with Dr Ketao Zhang from QMUL – Robotics

Please arrive by 9.45am at the Bancroft Road Teaching Rooms with a drink and a snack (there is not much point in arriving before 9.30 as we won’t be ready for you). We’ll get everyone registered then the masterclass will start at 10am.

Directions

Come to Bancroft Road as before but don’t walk very far into it as the SEMS building is right on the corner 🙂

If you need direction reminders have a look at the first set of instructions here.

Food and drink
Please remember to bring a drink and a snack for your morning break. We will be in a corridor next to the workshop room this week.

There are shops open nearby, a Sainsbury’s next to Stepney Green station and a Co-op opposite it and another Sainsbury’s nearer QMUL – you will need to bring or buy your snack BEFORE the class begins as there isn’t time during the break to leave the building and return on time.

Absences
If you can’t attend the session please send us a text or voicemail message on 07706 148 772 to let us know (please don’t rely on just telling your teacher or anyone else in case the message doesn’t get through). You can also email Jo on j.brodie@qmul.ac.uk If we’ve not heard from someone by about 10.15am we’ll check with their emergency contact to make sure they’re OK and not lost somewhere.

 

History of the QMUL / Ri Masterclasses in Computer Science

Want to see what we did last year? Here’s some information about the previous Ri Masterclasses in Computer Science for 2018.

Every Autumn since 2015 the Computer Science department at Queen Mary University of London has hosted a series of Ri Masterclasses, with the Royal Institution (of Christmas Lectures fame).

Contact the Royal Institution (email) to find out how you can get involved with one of the Ri Masterclasses at QMUL (or other venues around the UK).
