About Fire Tech

A Mission Driven Company

We are on a mission to fill the ever widening technology skills gap by inspiring and training kids to be confident technologists, creative thinkers and thoughtful leaders of our increasingly tech-enabled future.

HOW WE GOT HERE

In 2013 serial entrepreneur Jill Hodges started Fire Tech when she couldn’t find any courses to satisfy her two tech-enthused kids. Facing a widening skills gap in an increasingly technology based world, Jill wanted to provide a place where kids could get their hands dirty and experiment with a wide range of technology concepts. The first courses were run over the summer at Imperial College and led by Imperial and Cambridge students who helped contribute to the curriculum. The courses immediately sold out.

Since then, Fire Tech has continued to develop a pedagogy that focuses on project based learning, problem solving and creative skills. We continue to attract tutors with hands-on knowledge of the latest technology in coding, robotics, digital media and design. The students are inspired by the collaborative and creative work environment. Parents love our small class size.

Fire Tech now offers a year round programme that has delivered over 8,000 learning experiences across the UK, Europe, Caribbean, Australia and the Middle East.
