Course Overview

New school year and new awesome tech projects!

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.
