Due to COVID-19 restrictions and our concerns for customer and staff safety, we have only limited availability of in-person camps. If there is not camp available in your area, we recommend our online courses, now available worldwide. Students can make new friends, complete creative tech challenges and learn from live tutors in small groups – all from the comfort of their homes.
Whatever your tech interest, robotics has it all. Robotics and automation are here to stay and you can get a leg up on the future by understanding how to be part of this exciting megatrend.
Let the Robot Wars Begin
Tournament style challenges bring teamwork, collaboration, and a little healthy competition into the mix. Get excited as you see your creation follow your commands to win the challenge!
Robot skills for life
Robotics pulls together every aspect of tech, and brings it all to life in the physical world. Beyond the programming angles, the use of sensors, outputs, and necessary calibrations reinforce math and physics skills, making this course one that really underpins every student's academic path. And let's face it, robots are super fun for every girl and boy!
Do you need any experience with Robots or programming to take this course?
No prior experience is needed. The course is beginner friendly but is flexible enough to challenge those that have done some programming or robotics before too.

Lego Mindstorms is a technology-focused environment that introduces students to ‘hands-on-learning’ through the construction of robotic projects that are able to be controlled through the use of a graphical programming interface. Robotics-focused camps are a highly-engaging way in which to introduce or extend students to foundational concepts within coding whilst concurrently learning principles of robotic engineering. Throughout the this camp students will build increasingly complex hardware-software projects to eventually compete against each other in challenges similar to those found within the First Lego World League. This class is sure to light up your child’s passion for tech within a competitive and engaging learning environment.
What your child will learn
Mechanical design and construction fundamentals
Working with moving parts and an introduction to engineering, including the use and calibration of sensors
Josh (on the right) is a Mechanical Engineering graduate from Imperial College London. His passion is using technology to solve real-world problems, co-founding a start-up to do just that. But he still makes time to teach Fire Tech's robotics courses because he loves inspiring the next generation of mechanical engineers!
