Jack, Age 15
'"I’ve been coming to Tech camp since I was twelve and have done courses in Rocketry, Robotics, Aeronautics and Raspberry Pi. We also did extra activities in the evenings and I especially loved reverse engineering where we took apart everyday machine like printers, computers and photocopiers. I have learned many different skills, including programming, soldering, wiring, flying and how machines work. I have taken home rockets, working robots which I programmed myself, have built a drone (which I fly at home).
I enjoy being with people who are interested in the same sort of things as me. It’s been great to learn things that you don't get taught at school like soldering and electronics. I would definitely recommend going to Tech Camp as all the people are so friendly and you never get a chance to feel homesick. I have used the skills I learnt to make many projects including programmable models. Going away to Tech camp on my own has given me more confidence and I feel that anyone going should not be scared as everyone makes it easy to join in and enjoy learning."
