Easter Holiday One day Workshops 2018

Stop Motion Animation

Children will create a stop motion film, using their own ideas, props (toys) and backgrounds. Using cameras, specialist software and digital editing techniques they will work towards a final movie that they can take home and share. We also showcase films on our YouTube channel, where your children can show off their creations to friends and family.

Appbuilder

Children will design their own Apps, thus creating technology rather than just being passive users. AND they will be able to show off their creations to family and friends on mobile phones or tablets at home. Apps will work in Android or IOS, and in all major web browsers.

It’s more than just a one day workshop too! We will give children a month’s access to the software, so they can continue to develop their skills, at their own pace, at home. Appbuilding offers a wide range of career opportunities: who knows where this might lead your child(ren) in the future?

Robotics/Engineering

We have a range of exciting programmable devices: BBC Micro:Bits to create simple circuits, wearable, playable technology and more, Lego© to build robots which move and react to their surroundings through sensors, and Edison© our new robot cars which read barcodes or use block programming and sensors to control movement. All of which will be a brilliant fun-packed day of making and programming, as well as nurturing skills in maths, technology and engineering.
