Weekend Tech Clubs

Weekly classes on different Tech Topics. Explore programming, electronics, forensics, puppetry, animation and more!

Do you like Technology, Science & making things?  Can't wait for the next holidays for more Tech Camps?  Join our expert tutors for weekly hands-on Tech workshops in your own home every Saturday or Sunday.

This 10-week programme is packed full of creative STEM projects.  At least 3-4 lessons every term involve physical equipment which we ship to you at the start of the term.  This term's practical projects involve learning how to use your own professional special effects makeup kit, creating 'pixel art' keyrings, and even a digital recorder for creating 'foley' sound effects for movies.

In Detail ...

The Best of Topics
Each term we select ten STEM topics that are guaranteed to engage young people whatever their age or experience.  These topics are hand selected out of Tech Camp's vast repertoire of projects and lessons we've designed over the years for our own camps, schools, and clients including The Science Museum and the Abu Dhabi Science Festival.  There's also plenty of ones we've custom designed just for Tech Club.  Together they form a programme of learning that professes within and between terms to teach the most important tech skills for young people growing up in the 21st century from coding through to 3D design, engineering and electronics.

The Best of Tutors
We've brought together the best of our tutors to instruct and help the students.  They're typically recent graduates or undergraduates studying Engineering or Computer Science at leading Russell-group Universities.  Of course they're chosen for their communication and technical skills and have Enhanced DBS checks for working with children.

The Best of Sessions
Engaging learning must be hands-on.  Our 'At Home' programme offer a mix of video tutoring, collaborative learning and self-paced project work during and after the session to make sure that learning is deep, engaging and lasting.

We run all sorts of different courses in school holidays, but a single set programme for our 'Tech Clubs' with different, changing topics every week.  Look for 'Tech Club' on our booking system calendar.

Five Stars Just left my boys’ first Tech Camp. They’ve been at the Chelsea camp all week doing game design in Unity. They loved it and are thinking of doing the robot making one next year. Really professional and helpful staff. Very happy kids.
