Lesson Outline

We will be joined by technicians and experts who will tell us all about the internet, from its Victorian roots, to what it looks like in modern-day.

During our time at EXA HQ, teaching will be put into a real-life context through exciting demos, recordings and animated infographics.

The lesson itself will follow guest presenter Alan O’Donohoe, as he explores the Victorian roots of the internet at Bradford Media Museum, to live demonstrations at EXA HQ, including taking a look at fibre cables and sending a ping all the way to Australia.
