Course Overview

Hot new projects for the summer term!

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. During our two-hour weekend classes over ten or five sessions, students will explore creative and inspiring topics from the world of tech — from learning how a computer works and programming robots, to creating music and digital art, and everything in between. No pre-requisites is needed to join the club.
