Coding Skill Clubs
Amazing physical computing sessions – see your coding skills take off!
All our coding activities is based on coding physical objects such as Drones, Sphero Robots or electronic components with Crumble Coding. The coding is block based (similar to Scratch), the main outcome being things happen in real life based on your code!
We use these engaging technologies to get learners to discover coding and develop a desire to learn about the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) that goes into the things that we make and use for the good of the world. While they are doing this they are developing other great skills such as team working, communication, resilience and problem solving.
Flying has captured peoples’ imagination for centuries. Using drone technology we have harnessed this imagination and excitement in our learners to work better in teams. The explosion in the use of Drones has been meteoric. Skill Supply is the UK leading users of drones in education.
With a block based coding system code our drones to follow your instructions to overcome the challenges we set you. In a safe environment you will learn how drones work and where they are used in real life.
Drone Coding is definitely our most popular Skill Club to date, with children coming again and again to enjoy the flying!
The Sphero is an amazing robot, that can be coded, driven or made to follow a drawn pattern. You can even use them in paint or water.
Engineer a chariot for it to pull around, or code it around a Mars maze, or even code it to play football or golf! We have several themes for our Sphero Skill Clubs that are always a firm favourite.
Crumble Coding and engineering uses a microcontroller which attaches to physical components which you code to make them work. We can code lights, buggies, musical instruments and much more on these hands-on engineering and coding days.
We are looking for the next two people to join our team! Are you enthusiastic about STEM? Love working with young people, developing their curiosity and skills? We have two new part-time permanent positions available from March 2022. We are looking for two people to run our holiday and after school clubs (known as Skill […]
We are back with Skill Clubs in Sandbach and Northwich this Summer. The full timetable of all the STEM activities we are getting up to can be found on our Skill Clubs page. There is also lots of info about the sorts of things that happen at each club, how to book and our updated Covid-19 policies […]
We send out newsletters that are linked to your interests. Our work is quite wide and varied so one newsletter doesn’t always suit everyone.Let us know what you are interested in on the form and we will send you the relevant information and news from us. Don’t worry we won’t spam you with lots of messages […]
