In Detail ...

How do our Tech Clubs work?
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.  Many of these have supplies that we mail you for the sessions so you can build electronic gadgets, games and circuits.

How does the Taster Session work?
We'll ship you a fun kit in the mail to give you an idea of the sort of projects that we build during our Tech Clubs.  Then you'll join us for an hour of fast-paced creative Tech projects.  We'll start by helping you build your kit which allows you to make an ultraviolet torch to investigate secret markings on objects around you.  We'll then get you trying other fun Tech Club projects including programming in Python and learning how to create 3D models.

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.
