Detailed information

Is your child a budding artist or an engineer who loves to build and create things? Do they take things apart to figure out how they work? Or maybe they just love LEGO and you’d like to channel their passion into something more educational?

This course introduces children aged 6 to 9 to design, engineering and robotics through a series of imaginative projects and challenges. Each day, students will work on new themes, from animals to space. As such, our students are always given a new challenges, stretching their imagination and demonstrating a practical application of technology. They complete these projects by building robots that use Lego Wedo®, a kit designed especially for children. These have previously included an X-wing flying machine, a racing car, and a pen-holding robot that can create colourful drawings!

Whether your child is completely new to coding and robotics, or have attended a blue{shift} camp before and took part in one of our core curriculum courses and wants to try something more hands-on and robotics-based, this course is perfect for them!

VIDEO | Holiday Camps

We think that our camps are super fun. But you shouldn't just take our word for it. We recently spoke to some of the blue{shift} teachers and students to find out more; watch our video to get a better idea of what makes a blue{shift} camp such a great adventure! 

FAQs:

  • Can I use my childcare vouchers to pay for this course?
  • Which Creative Coding level should I sign my child up for?
  • My child doesn't have a laptop - will an iPad or tablet suffice instead?
  • Is there any specific software I should install in advance?
  • “My daughter had a great time. Her teacher challenged and inspired her interest in coding and helped her produce lots of cool programmes each day.”
