    Bring your own laptop (or rent one of ours); all other equipment provided.

    Real time communication with parents using our online platform, featuring class updates and photos.
  • One of our most advanced robotics courses, students will explore 3D modelling and printing!

    The perfect course for older beginner coders, as well as intermediate and advanced students.

    Assessment and personalised teacher reports to ensure progress.

  • A focus on healthy learning - outdoor play every day, healthy snacks and drinks provided.

    Curriculum curated in conjunction with UCL.

    All staff are fully DBS checked & trained in both traditional and innovative teaching methods.

Practice makes perfect

It's common for our students to repeat courses more than once, and we will recommend repeating a course if we feel it is beneficial for the student's progress.

Regardless of the course, the camp, or how many times a student takes it, we create new content each and every time.

Detailed information

Jam packed with creative, crafty robotics, this short course will prepare your child with the foundations for engineering, design, and programming! Students will build their very own robots and develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and basic engineering skills by modifying their creations. But these are no basic bots! They will combine programming and sensor technology to make them move, react and solve challenges. 

Students will work with LEGO Mindstorms robotics equipment and software, to design their own creations, and acquire essential science, technology, and maths (STEM) knowledge. They will build their very own robots and develop critical thinking, problem-solving and basic engineering skills by modifying and troubleshooting their code. 

Students will be challenged to integrate programming and sensor technology to make their robots move, react and solve fun challenges, such as engage in a robot war!

The skills learnt over the course of these workshops can kickstart a passion for engineering and design - preparing young coders for a possible future career in these lucrative industries!







Your child will learn:


  • Basic engineering skills and principles
  • Programming robots with Lego Mindstorms kit
  • Understanding how gears, motors, sensors and other components work
  • Creative problem-solving
  • Teamwork skills
  • Design skills and how to build your design from scratch

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:

  • Will my laptop be good enough for this course?
  • What does my child need to bring to camp?
  • How can I keep track of my child's work?
  • Can I use my childcare vouchers to pay for this course?
  • “The things I liked most about camp were proper teaching, creative approach and the fact that my daughter really learnt something while having fun”
