Course Overview

We have put together some of the best parts from across our existing curriculum, added some amazing new kits and equipment, and then – in the true making spirit – tinkered with it all to engineer a one-of-a-kind weekend club for digital makers aged 9 to 12. For 10 sessions, students will explore creative and inspiring topics from the world of tech — from learning how computer works and programming robots to creating digital music and art and everything in between. No pre-requisites is needed to join the club.

Each term brings a different curriculum, allowing students to join the Junior Tech Club all year round!
