Fire Tech Evening & Weekend Camps
You don’t have to wait for holidays to go to tech camp! Now you can explore tech skills and creativity on weekends and afterschool during term time.
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.
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.
Ozobots are small, smart and programmable robots that empower gamers and learners to code, play, and connect the physical and digital worlds. We use Blockly to code our robots, a visual programming language which is free and kids can use at home after the course.
Make music (and unique musical instruments!) the way the professionals do it and let your creative juices flow.
Art meets Technology in our Digital Photography course. Create stunning, interesting, and creative photos! Across five Saturdays, 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+.
Get familiar with Python, one of the most widely-used and widely-taught programming languages in senior schools, universities and businesses, and learn to code from the ground up. This course is for teenagers aged 14+ looking to get a grasp on coding fundamentals while building the confidence and skills to go onto code independently.
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.
