As well as provide campers with an incredible camp experience, our core mission is to inspire our students to DREAM BIG. Our tutors want kids and teens to go away been more interested, more curious and more willing to try new things. If you’ve been following us over the summer, you’ll know that our campers have not only been getting their hands dirty with tech, but also taking part in team building exercises, pushing themselves to learn more and building incredible friendships. It’s our passionate tutors who help facilitate this and we strongly believe it’s our tutors that separate us from everyone else. Our instructors constantly mention how much students grow throughout the week and how by Friday, they can’t wait to show their parents what they’ve built.
Today, we’d like you to meet one of our students who shares his experience at Fire Tech. We hope his story will encourage others to get exploring with tech!
“My name is Bryan and I am 11 years old.
Last year, (2016), I took part in the Fire Tech Camp Senior Robotics class. The tutors gave me a fun, intuitive and engaging course which I would never forget.
I made great friends there and the skills helped a lot.
In what, you ask, well, I am part of a Lego Mindstorms robotics team. We compete in FLL (FIRST – For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology – Lego League).
Our first competition – the North London regionals – was only shortly after my course. I used the wonderful programming and building skills I learnt at FTC and we were crowned champions of North London!
We then started working even harder for only two months later, we would compete in the nationals in Bristol. Our work paid off as we got 7th in the country and got an invite to the four day international competition in Denmark, the home of Lego! We got free tickets to the Billund Legoland and tickets to Tivoli Frihëden – a theme park in Aarhus.
We had a wonderful time there and we got to meet lots of other teams – also the best of the best. Thank you Fire Tech Camp for always inspiring me to work harder!
Two weeks ago, I went to another two FTC courses, respectively junior robotics and senior robotics. It only gets better the third time!”
