Computing Workshops for Primaries MANCHESTER - Lego Robotics, Micro:Bit, Animation, Web Design and more!
A wide range of computing workshops designed specifically for Primary School Children – exciting and engaging while reinforcing the principles of computational thinking. Workshops include programming and coding with Scratch, Python or Kodu using XBox controllers; inventors' workshops with the Micro:Bit; become an app developer with children creating their own web app for Android or iOS; 3D design and printing/CAD; 21st century story-telling using stop motion animation or TV production techniques using autocues, special effects and post-production techniques for their own documentary; robotics workshops combining engineering principles with programming to complete the challenge; alternative energy workshops; forensic science CSI activities.
Many of our courses and workshops can be integrated with other curriculum topics – talk to us about your particular requirements.
Workshops work as half day or full day options. Shorter workshops can also be provided to suit individual requirements.
