Course Overviews

Coding

Our most popular course! During this coding course students will experiment with our most popular programming activities to learn about the different ways we can use coding. From controlling game characters, to creating their own unique animations - with coding, kids can do it all.

Engineering

In this course students will work independently, in partners, and as a team to complete engineering feats!

 

We'll test engineering and building theories and create structures to withstand different challenges throughout the day. This course will push students creativity, problem solving, and without a doubt resilience.

Zoology

Love animals? Know a lot about them? We'll take a closer look!

 

From viewing live Zoo cams, to class research projects, we'll teach students about the amazing animal kingdom. We'll even incorporate coding into our day of learning to see how animals can work together to complete challenges.

Newbie

Friendly

In this course you'll explore the technical and creative world of stop motion to create your own animated short film!

We'll create backgrounds, and props, add voice overs, and learn editing techniques.

Stop Motion

3D Printing

Learning to design and produce our own 3D prints, looking at CAD software, different types of printers (plastic, metal, biological material), and the future of this new technology.

Our robotics courses will introduce students to a variety of different robots that they'll learn to build, modify, control, and write code.

We'll work with three different sets of robots throughout the day to learn about sensors, inputs, outputs, and interactivity.

Robotics

Animation

In this course, students will use coding and design to create a series of their own animations!

 

We'll work through a variety of online activities teaching students about different software and techniques to create crazy cartoons.

Minecraft

In this course we'll introduce Minecraft newbies to all the amazing features of this highly creative and detailed game.

We'll learn about the different game modes, how to survive a night with found and crafted resources, and of course how to create incredible buildings, and infrastructure for use in game play.

Experts will explore commands & redstone.

Biology

In this course we'll take part in brain boggling biology experiments!

 

We'll learn about what the word biology means, what it looks like out in the world, and how we can become biologists in the classroom.

 

A practical course for curious learners who love making predictions and getting stuck in to test them

Science, technology, engineering, (art), and maths explored, we'll take on mind-boggling challenges to learn more about these important topics and how they work together in our world.

This course changes frequently we could be creating our own drawbot, building a mechanical claw, pulling apart a computer, or more!

STEM

Electronics

We'll introduce our students to electronics through coding, robotics, and science. We'll work with robots and microcontrollers to learn how our technical world works.

 

We'll explore sensors, use hobby motors, and explore conductivity through making our own game controllers.
