  • Exciting Game Design Classes For Children

    Exciting Game Design Classes For Children

    Would your child love to learn the art of game design?

    It goes without saying, the tech industry has never been bigger and is likely only to grow in the future. If you have a child interested in game design, this could be a potentially exciting career path for them to pursue once they grow up.

    If you’re looking to ways to encourage children to develop their skills, Tech Camp offer a range of exciting coding and computer engineering camps. There’s no better way to make the most of their summer than help to grow one of their biggest passions.

    Whether your child would love to design a robot, learn skills in coding, design games or discover more about electronics, Tech Camp can make it happen.

    Our courses take place at many of the UK’s leading institutions, teaching children aged 9-17 a range of skills that could incite a passion

    Laser Tag Developments

    We’ve been tinkering with a new addition to our laser tag course.  The new system is pretty advanced but we wanted campers to go home with a simpler way of controlling it that doesn’t need a WiFi connection.  We’ve recreated a version of our previous hand-held controller box that can be used to start and stop games, and even act as team bases for capture the flag.  Campers doing the laser tag course will be building two of these each this year!

  • Which programming language first?

    Which programming language first?

    Here at Tech Camp we are often asked which programming language to learn first - it can be a very confusing subject with so many options and opinions out there! Choosing the right starting point is very important especially when it comes to children - choosing something too easy for a certain age can result in boredom, and then a lack of motivation and interest to continue. It is also entirely possible to choose something too difficult to get to grips with, which can result in a loss of enthusiasm or long term 'phobia' of coding in general. It is important to remember that although there are many languages out there that are well regarded and described as 'industry standard', they often do not have enough introductory material and tutorials available to make them easy enough to learn as a first language.

  • Summer Calling?

    Summer Calling?

    Planning what to with the youngsters this summer? If you’re looking for something a bit meatier than day trips to attractions, then you might like to look at some new summer schools teaching theatre skills, broadcasting, and much more …

    As you’d expect, we’ll take this opportunity to give our own camps a plug first! If you’ve got budding innovators under your roof, then check out Tech Camp’s courses, running in London and Winchester. Here, your offspring will do all sorts of exciting things, from building robots or rockets through to coding. And they’ll meet like-minded individuals, along with tutors, many of whom are ex-campers, now reading engineering and other studies at the likes of Imperial and Cambridge.

    If your young are showing any theatrical talents, the Musical Theatre Summer School is offering five-day courses for teenagers between the age of 13 and 17 plus over 18s on a non-residential basis.

  • Easter Camp

    Easter Camp

    Just finished our Easter Test Pilot again and had a terrific time. We had an Easter event last year but this time around we wanted to run a really small event just to try out our new courses for 2016. We figured this would both give us an incentive to develop the courses in a more detailed manner longer before the summer and also to be able to use the feedback of the campers to improve things for when we’re inundated with hundreds of campers in a few months’ time.

    It was a great success – not only did we manage to iron out some minor wrinkles with the courses but the campers had a great time as well and to them it didn’t seem very different from a ‘normal’ Tech Camp.

    We were testing out four new courses – Quadcopters, Junior and Senior Robotics and our new version of Laser Tag.
