Virtual Tech Summer Camp 2020

After much consideration regarding the health and safety of your children as well as our staff, this year we have made the decision to switch our summer school to a virtual format.

We are excited to announce that this year our summer school will be technology-focused! Our Virtual Tech Camps are the perfect way to sharpen your kids' STEM skills and bond with friends, all from the comfort of your own home.

This year we will be running 2 different Tech Camps, depending on age. Each student will also be given the resources needed for each Tech camp.

Summer 2020 - What to expect? 

Camp 1 - Junior Coding Summer Camp 

During this course students will immerse themselves into the world of coding and computational thinking whereby using a variety of platforms and tools. Our approach to this program looks to combine problem solving, critical thinking and creative thinking to help young kids get a deeper understanding of computational thinking principles and a great foundation to programming. 

During this camp students will be provided with the BBC Micro:bit which they can keep. This will be delivered to them before the start of the camp.

In order to participate in our Tech Camps, students will require a PC/laptop with a USB port and internet access.
