“ALL OF OUR CHILDREN WERE HUGELY INSPIRED BY THE FUN, SPACE-THEMED PROGRAMMING WORKSHOP - EVEN THOSE WHO AREN’T USUALLY INTERESTED IN COMPUTING.

IT’S FAIR TO SAY GREAT FUN WAS HAD BY ALL, CHILDREN AS WELL AS TEACHERS"

PRIMARY SCHOOLS

Whether based on a moon landing in peril or a robot constructing a healthy lunch box, we will provide a framework for the development of a successful event for all levels of primary education.

You can choose from our existing workshops or help us create something new to fit your school themes.  These will be tailored to suit the needs and abilities of the group involved.

We supply follow up resources and follow up activities to help embed the primary computing curriculum and make if fun for children and teachers alike.

SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Secondary schools are where a student's interest in digital technologies can be fostered and encouraged.  Reports say computing at secondary level is in sharp decline.  We aim to bring the computing curriculum to life with events aiming to be fun, engaging and experiential, putting emphasis on the importance of creative problem solving and complex reasoning

BUSINESS

The computing curriculum is vital in enabling the students of today for the workplace of tomorrow - digital technologies are set to transform all industries in the coming years. Computational thinking provides a fantastic basis for teaching complex reasoning, creative problem solving, experimentation and resilience, skills which are applicable beyond IT.
