You are here:

Get creative with coding and robotics at hands-on after school courses.

Is your child a budding robotics engineer, a future app-developer or a computer coder in the making?

Join us for our after-school workshops where they can gain knowledge of robotics and coding on exciting courses run by Fire Tech Camp. They will be inspired to innovate, solve problems and work in a team to complete their project.

Two courses are running during the 2018 spring term:

Robotics with Ozobot

Children will use the Ozobot Bit robots to explore their creativity while learning key programming and engineering concepts. They will work in a small team to program their Ozobot to solve puzzles, complete mazes, dance and even go bowling.

Kano Adventure: build a computer and create with code

Kids will learn how to build a computer and use basic graphic design skills and Python coding to make games, build Minecraft environments and make music with Sonic Pi. We will be using the popular Kano computer-making kit which is based around the Raspberry Pi micro circuit board.
