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 design and 3D modelling in a minecraft world. World Building with Minecraft lets you build complex worlds and structures with your new skills.
Rapid Prototyping is a crash course is digital fabrication. 3D printing, laser cutting, vinyl cutting, vector design and more in this five day intensive introduction to the Maker Movement.
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.
Work together in small teams to master our VEX IQ robotics challenges while learning to code in the C-based programming language ROBOTC. Campers will use a range of sensors and switches to build competition-ready robots, which they will then program and test before entering the challenge zone. This course is ideal for teenagers (12+) who want to get hands-on with engineering and coding!
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!
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.
Get ready to wire up your Minecraft worlds with our Introduction to Redstone! Even if you're a seasoned Minecraft pro, there's plenty for you to learn. From basic traps to lighting systems and powered machines, Redstone offers Minecraft players a whole new range of opportunities to create amazing things.
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.
