The Technology Club is for children aged 10 to 18, who can program in Python and have either attended our ten-week beginners’ electronics course, or have a good basic grasp of electronics and how to use various components and tools.
Python, C++, HTML, CSS, coding projects
PC, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, BBC MicroBit platforms
3D printing and laser cutting projects
Designing and building electronics
amateur radio projects
Build and launch of solid fuel rockets
Build, launch and track High Altitude balloons
Design and graphics projects using Adobe Studio
outside visits to places of technology interest
The projects provide an interesting window into science and engineering, with a blend of theory and hands-on practical opportunities.
At any point in time, there are multiple streams and projects aimed at children with differing levels of experience and capability. (Note: age is not always the decider on what they do, as many youngsters are proving to be very capable!). The flexible nature of the projects means that children can join the club at anytime, not just the start of term
The costs levied to attend the Technology Club are to offset the direct costs of the components and equipment consumed completing the projects.
Each term lasts ten weeks, at a cost of £100 (incl VAT), which equates to £10 per two-hour session. There is no refund for sessions not attended. However, in their first term, new starters only pay pro-rata from their start date to the end of the first term.
