Summer Holidays One Day Workshops

Exciting Computing and Robotics Summer Holiday Workshops 2018

Kids, it's time to do something different in your summer holidays!

Learn some great new computing skills, get creative, create cool things, make new friends and have a ton of fun!

Check out the dates below to see where and when our fun and creative computing one day workshops are running during the summer holidays in Bristol and Bath to give kids the chance to try someting different, learn some real world skills and have fun.

Coding, robotics, creative computing, programming, animation - it's all happening in Bristol and Bath this summer!

At ComputerXplorers we love every bit of computing and encourage young people to have a go at a huge range of skills. Of course we have great code clubs, but we also go way beyond introductory coding to more advanced programming and robotics and super-creative computing areas such as 3D design, animation and movie-making. All for primary school age children!

Stop Motion Animation

Create your very own stop motion film, using your own ideas, props (toys) and backgrounds. Using cameras, specialist software and digital editing techniques you will make movie that you can keep. You can show your creation off to your friends and family too because we showcase films on our YouTube channel.

It’s not only great fun, you will develop computing confidence, skills and technical vocab.

Web Design

Tell the world about your favourite things, a game a team a band…use software specially designed for education, to create a multipage website, (a fanzine online) about one of their favourite things.

Have a blast developing skills in research, creativity and design! You will name it, research it, write stories for it, add images and videos! Get into basic HTML code too, and put yourown own twist on the fanzine’s final page.

And of course, it’s on the web so you can show your creation to the world (and the people around you).

Micro:bit and Robotics

The BBC MicroBit isn’t just another boring small computer! Program it to create games (and cheats), secret messages and devices to solve real world problems (now, did I leave that light on?). Use JavaScript blocks – or even JavaScript, if you want to chllenge yourself) to develop programming and engineering skills through the creation of numerous programs and wearable, playable technology. You will even program your own ‘Planet Rover’ to sample and radio back various data using the Micro:Bit’s range of sensors!

IDEAL IF YOU ARE STARTING KS3 NEXT YEAR – GET AHEAD WITH ONE OF OUR WORKSHOPS!

Use our Micro:bits, or bring your own.
