Pupils’ broadband lessons
Pupils at three Dundee high schools got the chance to learn about the benefits of technology when the Digital Scotland Fibre Showcase visited the city.
The bus visited St John’s RC, Morgan Academy and Grove Academy on its tour.
Pupils were taught about fibre broadband and how it is delivered.
St John’s head teacher Fiona McLagan said: “It was great to have the Digital Scotland team visit our school this week, it was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to see the amount of hard engineering work that’s involved in connecting up communities to fibre broadband.
“It also showed our pupils how beneficial it would be when it comes to their school work and various other aspects of their home life.”
Sara Budge, programme director for Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband, said: “It’s fantastic news that the programme has been able to benefit residents and businesses in and around Dundee.
“I would like to thank the three high schools for having us this week and I hope that the pupils visiting the Digital Scotland Fibre Showcase found it an enjoyable experience, finding out what fibre broadband can provide and how it’s delivered.”
BT is investing £126 million in the Digital Scotland rollout and Robert Thorburn, the company’s fibre broadband director, said: “We hope pupils had fun finding out how highspeed technology powers the internet.”
