Hi everyone

Last Wednesday, KCL Tech hosted their much-anticipated First Year Hack (FYH) for first-year students.

The day kicked off with an engaging introduction from KCL Tech and Enactus, where project ideas were presented to the teams. Once projects were selected, teams dived into action, either coding applications or creating proof-of-concept representations in Figma. 

With a ready supply of snacks and delicious pizza for lunch, the atmosphere remained supportive throughout, with plenty of questions being asked. 

In the afternoon, Preface delivered a presentation on pitching skills, well-received by all. Three teams bravely stepped up to do live pitches at the end of the day, leading to the announcement of a winning team.

A huge thank you to everyone who participated! We hope you had an amazing time. Special congratulations to the winning team!

Stay tuned for more exciting collaborations and events!

Until next time :)

Hi everyone! 

I'm excited to share with you a fantastic event that took place last Wednesday, where KCL Tech, alongside other societies, had the privilege of showcasing hands-on demonstrations to 50 sixth form and college students.

Partnering with RIE and the team lead, Jun (Dimitri) Zhang, who organised the SGL project featuring an AI robot, we had the opportunity to present this innovative project to the students. 

During the event, students were able to control the robot, causing it to move and even shoot a bullet at a target we set up. It was truly remarkable to see the students engage with the demonstration, employing tactics to aim the bullet perfectly at the bullseye. 

The enthusiasm displayed by the students was inspiring, with many expressing interest in pursuing computing or engineering for their future endeavors. It was incredibly rewarding to witness the impact we were able to make through this event. 

A special thank you goes out to our dedicated KCL Tech stall holders: Dimitri, Minseok Ryu, and Neel Nair. I personally had the pleasure of learning from their expertise, and I'm grateful for their contributions to making this event a success. I also want to extend my gratitude to everyone who worked on the AI robot. Their hard work and dedication were instrumental in the success of this event. 

Looking forward to more impactful events in the future! 

Until next time :)

Bloomberg BPuzzled Event Recap

Hi everyone! Welcome back to the latest update from KCL Tech. On 25/01/24, we hosted a phenomenal event in collaboration with Bloomberg called 'BPuzzled'. It was fantastic to see so many of you there! 

Let's hear directly from some of our participants about their experience:

Ekaterina Hunter: "Participating in the KCL Tech Bloomberg BPuzzled event was an incredible experience! The puzzles, designed in the style of an escape room, offered a delightful blend of challenge and fun when tackled in teams. The environment was both competitive and supportive, and the three-hour experience was topped off with much deserved pizza."

Shayna Gail A. Velasquez, DipLCM: "Thursday’s BPuzzled event with Bloomberg was incredibly enjoyable and engaging. The vibrant atmosphere created a buzz, making it undoubtedly one of KCL Tech's standout events this year. I had an absolutely wonderful time."

The event was a hit, and we extend our heartfelt thanks to Bloomberg for this wonderful opportunity!
