Adobe Photoshop is a creative industry staple! Editing photos, creating special effects, and designing digital masterpieces are all ways in which professionals use Photoshop in every day life. In this club we will focus on retouching techniques for photographs, enhancing images with special effects, and honing our graphic design skills. Photoshop is a complex platform – if you can think it, you can make it! Join us in learning the skills to do so.
What could be more fun than going behind the scenes of your favourite game? In this fun club we channel children’s passion for Minecraft into key digital skills. Students will use a block-based programming language to code and create their own in-game items and structures, and learn how to use key coding concepts like loops, functions, variables, and conditionals.
This club introduces children to engineering and robotics through a series of imaginative projects and challenges. Throughout the term, students will work on a number of different projects, such as building their own interactive fun fairs, smart vehicles, or animatronic animals! Our students are always given new challenges, stretching their imagination and demonstrating a practical application of technology. They will complete these by building robots using LEGO Spike, a kit designed especially for children.
In this interactive club, students will get hands-on with Micro:Bit pocket-sized computers and learn how to use them as part of robotics projects. Students will build and programme their very own robots to participate in games and competition. They will learn how to use key engineering tools like ultrasonic sensors, light sensors and servo motors to enhance their robots, and Bluetooth to communicate between robots.
