We’re bringing you a whole new game design experience, with our Arcade Gamer course featuring the Microsoft Kitronix ARCADE Gamepad - a fully featured programmable gamepad for use with the MakeCode Arcade block editor.
Our online Minecraft Inventions courses can help you play Minecraft on a new, improved level, by teaching you how to create your own gadgets and inventions - from secret floor traps to puzzles and timers.
We give you a round-up of some of the most exciting games released in 2020.
Another exciting year for gaming is kicked off to a great start with some fantastic new games, either already released or set to be released. Here is the low-down on some of our personal favourites - maybe some of them can provide you with inspiration for creating your own games!:
Please note that release dates may change due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.
You may not be able to come to us, but we can come to you: with our online courses, featuring our best projects, with our best tutors, and a super fun learning structure!
We wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on the fun and learning which takes place at Tech Camp, so we have devised a way to bring all the elements of camp to you - the learning, the creating, and the socialising!
We just received an email from one of last year’s campers who responded to a call to create some PPE for their local NHS:
“My son attended Tech Camp last summer and learnt to use a 3D printer. Yesterday we got an SOS from Winchester hospital asking for PPE. Harry immediately researched a design and put his printer to work. The first batch are done!
Learn the latest in Tech, build practical projects, and socialise the other like-minded students your age in the safety of your home. We're running daily 1 & 2-hour video classes accompanied with 1 & 2-hour self-paced learning and project work between lessons. Our expert tutors will be running these in small-group classes of no more than 8 students, running Monday-Friday. We'll also be running 'one-off' specialist sessions and releasing new classes regularly.
At the moment, our summer camps are open for booking as normal. Of course it is possible with COVID19 it may not be possible to run them, but almost all of the parents we've asked so far are keen to keep their bookings open in case that they do go ahead, and we realise what a welcome relief camp will be when all the social distancing is finally gone for children to be out doing something exciting and not being stuck at home!
The gaming industry, like most technology-focused industries, has traditionally been a male-dominated space. With gaming commonly thought of as a predominantly masculine pastime, opportunities and role models for women trying to enter into the gaming industry have been scarce.
Not a football fan? Ever wondered whether you could design something which would show up even the most talented sportsperson in the world? Well, take a look at this video where professional Drone Racing League (DRL) pilot, Dunkan, heads to France to take on 5 top OCG Nice football players with his Racer3 drone.
The future is here and you no longer have to stick to a core subject to get a great degree! Traditionally, when students think of venturing off to university they deliberate between those courses which are pushed as ‘core’ subjects at school: English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics - perhaps considering Medicine, Law or Business and Economics as a more ‘adventurous’ choice. However, the world is changing.
Pen and paper’s worst enemy has changed the world, and doesn’t look like stopping any time soon! CAD (Computer Aided Design) has revolutionised drafting and design methods across the world, taking over from less efficient and repetitive pen and paper methods. It involves the use of computer software to design and document a product’s design process.
