Building robots and rockets, learning coding skills, designing computer games, getting stuck in to 3D design, electronics and model-making are just some of the activities like-minded students enjoy at a Tech Camp course. All projects involve innovative take-home projects, so the learning and fun can continue at home.
Established in 2008, Tech Camp is the UK’s original and longest-running provider of such camps, which students can attend in either Winchester (residential) or London (non-residential). Students from across the UK – and from further afield – attend the camps and learn from tutors with bright, young minds and a passion for the techie world.
There are two venues for this Summer’s events. The London courses will be held over four separate weeks in July and August 2016 at Chelsea Academy, London, and are for day campers.
The Winchester courses will run over four weeks in August 2016 at The Wessex Conference Centre, for day or residential campers. The Wessex Centre is on the site of Sparsholt College, and offers great facilities with easy access to London and the South East, but in a beautiful and safe rural location.
Tom Ward, founder of TechCamp, comments: “At TechCamp we remain among the best in our field – we’ve been investing in the inventors of tomorrow since 2008 and are committed to helping train young people to help ensure the gaps are filled with our own home-grown digital specialists.
“By attending our camps, young people get to learn fascinating and very practical coding skills which will help them stay ahead of the pack, and with so many incredible opportunities opening up in the world of digital, what we’re doing is not rocket science. Ok, some of it is but that’s beside the point.”
