"Fire Tech Camp has helped me find my mistakes and learn from them, and pushed me higher with my creativity showing me the sky is NOT the limit! I will definitely come back for another camp!"Rebecca, Age 11
Created for students who want to know how things work. Design, engineer, and code useful everyday objects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a topic that’s attracted lots of attention over the past few years. The ability to connect everyday objects to the internet, from your fridge to your door locks, promises us the opportunity to improve our day-to-day lives. At the heart of these systems are computer chips that can be programmed directly.
In the Fire Tech maker-space, your budding engineers will go under the hood of everyday objects, learning how to trigger events and moving on to build more challenging projects like temperature sensors and music players and even their own creations, harnessing the power of the IoT to connect us to our things and change our environments.
