Children get to see their code take shape.

 
 

Coding

We show what coding can do by challenging children to code our robots using the visual Crumble language.

The kids can test out their ideas using a series of tasks, then sit back and watch their robots dance! 

 

Making

There are no worksheets and no waiting for a turn.  Just the joy of tearing down and rebuilding robots while on a mission to save civilization!

Whether your child is passionate about coding, space or getting their hands covered in paint there is something for everyone to enjoy.

     
     

    We talk to parents a lot.

    Here's what they say.

     
    "Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! Inspired excited motivated... Such a high quality opportunity, with tutors that are truly good people."

    We cannot guarantee the room will be available outside these times.

    How much coding experience is expected?

    None at all. 

    What syllabus do you teach?

    Our activities are designed to connect with the national curriculum key stages 2 and 3 in science, the same as ISEB 11+ and 13+. We place most emphasis on electricity, properties of materials, light and sound.

    What is included in the price?

    • A full day of robotics and coding activities in a warm, welcoming environment.
    • 1:5 tutor to student ratio: every child gets plenty of one-to-one time
    • Professional educators: founders Dr. James Lambert and Dr. Frank Ivins are passionate about coding, robotics and engineering. Whenever they need an extra hand with the workshops, they only hire highly qualified, experienced tutors.
    • Every child gets their own robot to work on during the workshops. No time wasted waiting for your turn.
    • Sorry the robot isn't included. But click here to get one.
    • Access to a comprehensive set of instructional videos and example files, available online after the workshop so students and parents can explore robotics at home. See our resources page.

    What about food?

    Please bring a packed lunch.

    13:00 - 14:00: Lunch.

    14:00 - 15:30 : Engineering challenge! Students build add-ons to their robots to complete a challenge. Add arms, a scoop. Whatever your imagination suggests.

    15:30 - 16:00 : Competition time! Girls and boys can share their ideas with each other during a fun challenge.
