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.
The Magic of Tech Camp, In Your Own Home! Say Hello to Our NEW Online Courses
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 have redesigned our best courses to be run over video sessions, with our best tutors from Russell Group universities teaching in the same small groups we run at camp; a 1:8 tutor to student ratio. We're running daily 1 and 2-hour video classes accompanied with 1 and 2-hour self-paced learning and project work between lessons. Your children will be able to work alongside kids their own age, so they don’t miss out on one of the key elements of camp: the fun of socialising. The courses last a week, so if your child can’t choose they needn’t worry - they can do another!
We’ve started off with courses that will be simpler to learn at home, based around coding, creative game design and programming. Then we’ll bring you more complex courses revolving around hardware, like our Drone Racing, FPV Rally Racing, 3D Printing and Laser Tag courses! Each course has been designed to offer versions suited for different abilities, so all children between 8-17 can get involved in a course that challenges them just the right amount!
Our current courses are:
- Python Games
- Python Advanced
- Minecraft Inventions Junior
- Minecraft Inventions Senior
- Arcade Gamer
- Professional Web Design
- Tech Club
(May 2020 Update: We've now got 16 courses open for booking including 3D design, drone racing, extra game design options and more!)
So, to open your child’s eyes to the world of incredible things they can create from their own home, book an online course now! Places are limited, but we will always try to open up spaces where we can! Find out more on our Online Courses webpage.
