Student Success: computer science students scoop award at Manchester Science Festival

Congratulations to four of our students for winning an award at the Manchester Science Festival’s 24 hour coding competition, Hack Manchester.

Our winning second-year undergraduates were set a number of challenges and came up with the best solution among the contestants.

Their challenge involved making the most interesting use of data from Greater Manchester Police. In reponse to this challenge, the four students came up with a number of suggestions, including the creation of a web application called Homeward Bound to help decide the safest routes for people to get home.

The names of the winning team are Katie Paxton-Fear, Lewis Campbell, Dom Wright and Tom Willington.

Well done to all the team.
