Fire Tech Day Camps
Students join us each day of their course and return home in the evenings.
This course teaches how to get started with creating 3D games using the Unity and C#. Designed to help both the complete beginner and those that may have tried some programming before learn the tools and skills needed to start making a diverse array of games.
Learn to code by creating games in the Java programming language. This courses uses gaming as a fun and creative way to master key computing concepts and coding basics. Students will use Java and the Greenfoot library to learn computer science theory, syntax, and object oriented coding.
Art meets Technology in our Digital Photography course. Create stunning, interesting, and creative photos! Across five days, campers will learn all the key functions of a modern DSLR camera and how to use it to create great images worthy of framing and putting on your wall. Suitable for ages 12+.
Fire Tech Crew is our Saturday term time course for exploration of all that is creative and inspiring in the world of youth tech! Students attend two hour sessions each week to explore robotics, games development, coding, app design, making, electronics and anything else that we think will pique their interest in different aspects of technology.
The workshop will use Arduino microprocessors as a base, and participants will have a chance to invent and code their own gadgets using sensors, motors and breadboards. As with all Fire Tech courses, we encourage original thinking through project-based work and, in the case of Arduino, campers are really only limited by their imagination!
Learn, design and experiment with code! Gain knowledge in coding fundamentals and then rapidly proceed to using that knowledge with confidence while creating your own robots, apps, games and animations. This course is aimed at entry-level coders aged 9 to 11.
Students will learn how to build a computer, and use basic graphic design skills and Python coding to make games, build Minecraft environments and make music with Sonic Pi. We will be using the popular Kano computer making kit which is based around the Raspberry Pi micro circuit board.
Become a part of the Maker Movement by using Minecraft! In this course you will make your own world, blocks and structures, and even experiment with different materials to create physical game controllers. As a Minecraft Maker at Fire Tech Camp, you will be thrown into an intensive mix of creativity, gaming and engineering and come out of it with an impressive command of important computing concepts, practical making skills, and an enhanced understanding of how to expand and enjoy your Minecraft universe. This camp is ideal for junior makers aged 9-12.
Learn Python Coding and electronics from the ground up by using one of the most popular gaming platforms on the planet: Minecraft.
Robotics is a rich environment for engineering and programming. Campers work in teams of 2-3 students to build robots that can use sensors to find lines, identify threats and targets, and then integrate programming with motors, sounds and other outputs to move, react and solve challenges. Robotics is a fantastic way to fire up students’ passion for tech skills. This is one of most popular courses among our 9-12 years old students.
Make music (and unique musical instruments!) the way the professionals do it and let your creative juices flow.
