New course for absolute beginners: Junior Coder

Fire Tech Camp has been busy working on new curricula to introduce in 2017. We’ve managed to get the first of these out in time for our December 2016 camps. Junior Coder is a course for 9-12 year olds new to the world of tech and coding. It’s an exploration of robotics, animation, app design, games design, and straight-up coding. This course gives young people a chance to get to grips with the basics, and work on an original project in their chosen area. This is a great course for kids to build their confidence, or to get a feel for the different ways that they can use tech to get creative and to solve problems. The campers will spend about a day on each of the areas, with a chance to dive deep into the one that is most interesting to them. We think this course will be a great base for our youngest campers, preparing them to make the most of their follow-on camps.

We provide all the equipment for this camp, all the kids need to bring is a packed lunch and their imaginations! We hope this will be a super fun starter course – and watch this space for more new courses coming in 2017 for kids and for teens!
