Want to Get Better At Minecraft? We Can Teach You How to Play Like Never Before
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.
The world’s most successful casual game, Minecraft is obviously fun, but it can be even better. Using Redstone, we can teach you to shape Minecraft servers to exciting new extremes, creating gadgets, inventions, traps, puzzles, and even doors which require specific items to open them.
The Minecraft platform is actually a fantastic and fun way to learn about logic, machines and digital circuitry, so you play it on our course and even tell your Mum that you are doing something educational!
We offer two courses, for 9-12-year-olds and 13-17-year-olds, where you can design in a virtual world with others in your class. This means you can work in your own area, explore someone else’s designs, or even work together to build something incredible. There is a maximum of 8 students per class, so you can be collaborative whilst still getting plenty of individual support.
Minecraft is not just for fun - countless people have made careers or just money from their ingenious work! Microsoft created a marketplace when it made the game, which allowed designers to apply to enter and then sell their creations. When in the marketplace, anyone in the world could download your design, and pay a little for it too!
Sounds like a win-win situation? We think so! Our Minecraft course is running now, so click here to book!
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!
Would your child love to learn the art of game design? It goes without saying, the tech industry has never been bigger and is likely only to grow in the future. If you have a child interested in game design, this could be a potentially exciting career path for them to pursue once they grow up.
We've just finished running a rocketry activity at a corporate workshop for a BP team. This is a great activity as it can be done at multiple levels with all ages and abilities. With the more able (and adult) group that we had today we can cover a lot of ground in a few hours, exploring some theory as well as building and flying a couple of rockets.
3D Printing is a rapidly evolving industry, with new products, research and breakthroughs appearing every day. But it’s not all just about printing a new phone case, storage box or small plastic toy – 3D printing technology has a growing number of exciting real-world applications, which are becoming ever more important to businesses all over the world.
Does your child love their gadgets and wants to learn more about how technology is developed? If they love experimenting with computers, simply book them onto one of our tech camps in 2018. Tech Camp inspires the next generation of inventors through our coding, electronics and engineering holiday camps for kids.
Inspired by Harry's efforts at making some face shields, we contacted some local doctors around us who were keen to get some as well. Seems crazy that our front-line NHS staff don't have access to something as simple as this.
Twenty six planes all built, and all in the air! Twenty five came down (pretty much) intact. This is Greg just before the maiden flight. Sadly this one went straight in a tree but we were able to retrieve it today with the help of some very long ladders, poles, and the helpful people at Ufton Court.
It's no wonder that coding is more fashionable today than ever before. The ability to program is undoubtedly one of the most important skills for the current generation of children to have leading into their adult lives. In 2015, 7 million job openings required the ability to code in the US (Burning Glass) and it is known that the best way to learn is to start early. A coding camp is a great way to introduce the next generation to the most important skill of the future. While popular culture can often make coding seem a daunting and tricky skill, that is far from the truth. Programming is a skill which everyone can learn.
Tech Camp are heading up to the Newcastle Maker Faire again, and this time we’re bringing our very own time machine! It’s top secret at the moment but we can speed-up, slow-down, freeze, and even reverse the flow of water using the three ‘time controls’! We’ll be making up a few of these machines for the public to try out as it’s hard to stop playing with them once you start!
