Be the first to know when we launch our new dates by subscribing for updates.
We run workshops on a wide range of topics to encourage adaptability and flexibility in children and to expose them to a variety of disciplines. We run workshops subject to demand, so if you would like to see a workshop on a particular topic, please get in touch.
Video Game Design
This latest workshop to be added to our selection booked out in two weeks last time we ran it. Children learn about the skills required for effective game design and try their hands at designing several different types of video game using iPad software. The day is split between time on the iPads and other non-screen activities.
Another of our popular workshops, where children get hands on experience of engineering as they build their own machines. Children learn about the six simple machines and where they are used around us, before getting the chance to create their own simple and compound machines.
In this workshop, children learn about flow and navigation in apps and then design apps of their own. They design each screen for their app and then use simple iPad software to link them together into a useable app without the need to code.
In this popular workshop, children learn about movie making techniques such as green screening. They write, shoot and edit their own movies on a particular theme, which are shared with parents to watch and enjoy together at home.
Robotics & Robot Design
Unlike many robotics classes, in our workshop children spend time on both the programming of robots and creative non screen-based tasks relating to the utility of robots in our lives. We use robotics kits that require children to actually assemble their robots from component parts before they programme them to complete a range of missions.
Designing & Making
We recently sold out this workshop where children learn about the stages of the design thinking process to design their own innovative inventions. They then create prototypes of their inventions and come up with accompanying branding to mimic the stages of a real life product launch.
What Parents are Saying
A brilliant and much needed concept for young children to explore their creative genius! Just wish this was part of school life for all children.
A. Odhavji, parent
My children had an amazing time and are desperate to do it another time. Also it seems to have achieved the miracle of tiring them out, something not many activities have achieved!
F. Sandford, parent
My son came home fizzing with excitement. He said he'd had a brilliant time and from all his chatting I could see he had learnt a lot too. We can't wait for more courses. Highly recommended!!
