Coding Camps:

To adequately prepare for a future world where coding will be linked to most functions in our personal and professional lives, humans are encouraged to embrace an understanding of the universal digital languages of the future. We have developed introductory programs which can provide a fundamental set of skills such as an understanding of computational thought, problem solving, critical thinking and other future skills through a bespoke methodology that allows a learner to grasp basic coding language skills, build and operate a robotic device, or fly a recreational drone by applying the coding principles. A practical, interactive camp that can achieve a rapid result and is accessible to anyone from age 8 to 80.

The introductory program will provide a strong sense of where a participants aptitude lies and provide possible career and learning path direction into a long-term coding pathway in the following areas:
