The 12 boys had a great experience at the 'Inspire' day by learning about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how to program an android in order to make a jam sandwich.

They also built a personal computer and were challenged to design and make a rocket car and then fire it from one side of the room to the other.

Tom Bunbury, headteacher at Papplewick, said: "This was a great experience for the boys to see the various challenges in this fast moving industry - programming an android to make a jam sandwich would not normally be part of their day."
