Fire Tech News

6 reasons to join Fire Tech virtually this Easter break!

The kids have only been back at school five minutes, it seems, and already we have Easter break coming up again!

We know it’s been a challenge this year and much of last year to keep them both entertained and educated (even more so than usual) – so allow us to help out this Easter! 

We’ve got a full programme of fantastic fun and educational Easter Break courses to give them something to look forward to – AND we are also launching our Spring2021 Campaign: #ExploreYourFuture, so we’ve also got some great expert guests involved to help your kids explore future careers in tech.

Why join one of our courses this Easter Holiday

If the above isn’t enough to convince you, read on to find out why enrolling on one of our courses is a great idea for you and your child this Easter!

  1. Most courses are 4-5 days long, helping give your kids something to look forward to every day for 4-5 days, not including the Bank Holidays. These days can then be just for family easter fun – sunny spring walks, easter-egg hunts and relaxing as a family.
  2. All courses are fully remote, meaning that you can easily maintain social distancing and participate from wherever you are!
  3. Each course gives an interactive, live experience from 10 am to 3 pm each day (with regular breaks).
  4. Kids collaborate with new like-minded friends in small class sizes and can build a project to share with family and friends.
  5. Your child can choose from a range of courses and learn the latest technology – taught by inspiring expert tutors! Meet some of the tutors here.
  6. We even have some awesome inspiring tech entrepreneurs who will be checking in to make things extra interesting throughout the week at lunchtimes.
