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.
We are back this Easter with our fantastic holiday clubs including our new venue in Shrewsbury! Our clubs have a different STEM theme each day and are available to all children aged 8 to 13 years. Bookings are open now and our timetable of activities and dates can be seen on our webpage here Places […]
Last year the NEON bursary fully funded or substantially funded some of our engineering workshops. Below is the amazing feedback from Ashmole Academy about our drone coding session with Year 12 Physics and Computing students. What’s more, the bursary scheme is now back open for 2022 applications. You need to hurry as the closing date […]
We absolutely love creating and delivering workshops using the Crumble microcontroller. At Broadbent Fold Primary school we were lucky enough to deliver our Wearable Tech session. Children had already spent some time thinking about technology that would be useful to wear in the jungle. They then set about making some of their own.
