Innovators: Ages 10-14

Innovators: Python and Robotics

Join us for an amazing Easter-themed week where we'll delve into both Python, the most popular coding language around and robotics. We'll learn the basics of Python and will use it to program robots of our own design.
Difficulty Level
Suitable for all students regardless of experience.
8 April to 12 April
From 10AM to 4PM early drop-off from 9AM

Some of the projects we'll build will include a multiplayer game with Python, a radio-controlled vehicle and a walkie talkie. We'll even make and program a smart watch! We'll culiminate the week by making a more complex platformer game using Microsoft Make:Code. This week presents the opportunity to have fun whilst developing a foundation in Python.

Learning outcomes

Python foundations

We'll learn to create complex images using Python and create quizzes


Use Python to control inputs and outputs on the Micro:bit

Introductory robotics

Add input and output devices to the Micro:bit (sensors, motors)

Create interactive, multiplayer games 

Use the micro:bit as a game controller; develop complex games using Python. Understand loops, conditionals, functions

Information for parents

All of the programming environments are browser-based; hence no downloads are necessary. BlueShift will provide all robotics equipment. 

This is a sample schedule for a typical day at camp. In between each lesson there will be a 15-minute snack break, or a 1-hour lunch and play break.
10.00 - 11.00
Lesson 1
First off we'll get to know our teacher and classmates through some great mini games. Once we're all friends, we'll be introduced to our activity for the day. Let's jump in to coding!
11.15 - 12.30
Lesson 2
Now that we've had a healthy snack, we're ready to get right back into our activity. We'll carry on flexing our creative muscles by designing, coding and building our project.
12.30 - 13.30
After half an hour for lunch it's time for some offline, outdoor time. Students take part in activities ranging from inflatable obstacle course races to football tournaments, scavenger hunts to water games (fingers crossed for some sunny weather!).
13.30 - 14.45
Lesson 3
Let's refocus after lunch and playtime by diving into building our robots!
15.00 - 16.00
Lesson 4
It's time to finish off our project for the day and show it off to the rest of the class. Time has flown by - let's tidy up our work stations, pack up our things and get ready to go home!


Illness policy

Campers should not be brought to camp if they are displaying signs of illness. In the case of a camper who has become ill during camp hours, parents will be notified immediately to pick their child up. If a child misses a day or multiple days of camp because of an illness, credit towards another camp can be arranged for when they're feeling better.

Refund policy

You can cancel your camp booking up to 14 days prior to the start date. If you want to cancel your camp booking less than 14 days before, you can receive 50% refund or full credit towards future courses when cancelling between 13-7 days before, or full credit when cancelling less than 7 days before. If we are unable to run our camps, you will receive credit or a full refund. If you cancel for any reason you may be liable to pay the difference if our prices increase.
