How they Work
The Best of Projects
We've chosen some of our favourite hands-on Science & Technology topics and designed practical projects around them to engage adults and kids alike. The kits are high-quality and exclusive to Tech Camp and you're unlikely to find anything else on the market that is similar.
The Best of Resources
Each kit has one or more online tutorials to step you through the projects. They're generally simple enough for (older) children to follow by themselves, but include plenty of background science and extension ideas for adults or those keen to explore further.
The Best of Support
It's part of our mission to inspire the next generation of engineers, inventors and scientists, and our job doesn't end when you've got the kit. You'll be able to contact us online or by phone should you have any problems and we'll do whatever we can to help!
First choose your box
We have boxes to suit all interests, whether technical or creative.
Personalise your box
If you'd like your box named, let us know when you check out and we'll add a name on the front of the box for free.
Proceed to the checkout
You can pay easily online using a credit card.
We'll ship your kit
We're hand-assembling a limited number of kits in 2020 and will ship the first ones commencing November, 2020. If you order by then we can guarantee avilability of all kits and arrival by Christmas, but we might have limited stock after then.
When it's opened ...
When your present is opened by the recipient (or you!) there's a web link printed in the inside of the box. Just go to that URL to access the online lessons and support material. Have a problem? We'll be online over Christmas to help out.
Is everything included?
We include as much as possible and generally only assume people have things that are very common like a pair of scissors. Everything else is included in the kit. The 'Games & Animation' and 'Photography' kit require access to a smartphone for some of the activities. The 'Smartphone Lamp' can work with or without a smartphone, but will require access to a PC or Mac just for the programming step.
What experience is needed?
Generally none at all, but check the description of the individual Tech Box for more information. Generally we design the kits to need limited adult assistance for around age 10 and above but that can vary depending on the child!
Do I need internet access?
Our online lessons require internet access but generally the activities don't. The 'Photography' and 'Games & Animation' boxes do require internet access to download the apps the first time they are used.
How long will the kits take to build / how long will the boxes occupy someone for?
This varies from kit to kit. Check the description above for more information. We try to make the kits open-ended so that although most projects can be completed in a few hours at most, but those who are keen on experimenting might be engaged for many hours (or indeed many days!)
I must say that I'm very impressed by the quality of the kit supplied by Tech Camp. We've built plenty of robots and used many science kits and it's the first time I've seen a kit for kids of this quality.
