Junior Tech Club

Course Overview

New exciting projects for the term time!

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 2hrs and for 5 sessions or 10 sessions, students will explore creative and inspiring topics from the world of tech — from learning how computer works and programming robots to create music and digital art and everything in between.

No pre-requisites is needed to join the club.
