Innovative and Creative Tech Camps and Courses for Kids
Fire Tech, the UK's leading provider of tech education for 9-17-year-olds outside of school, is running holiday activity camps across the UK during the half-term, Easter and Summer holidays and during term-time at weekend and after-school clubs.
A unique form of fun, Fire Tech camps inspire young minds to create code, engineer robots, design video games, create virtual reality experiences and use digital skills to produce graphics, music, photography and vlogs.
There's a course for every age and stage - from complete beginners to tech enthusiasts who want to learn more. Engineering and Computer Science students from some of the UK's most prestigious universities make up the hand-picked camp tutor teams.
Set up by USA-born tech enthusiast, Jill Hodges, Fire Tech has delivered over 12,000 courses across the world and classes are taught by subject-specialists with an 8:1 student to tutor ratio.
This is a real quote from a real parent whose son attended Fire Tech: "Fire Tech has had a hugely positive effect on [my son]. It is lovely to see him so engaged....there is a definite correlation between coming to camp and deciding to work really hard at school."To book this activity, please contact:
