Bricks Challenge Camps – Ages 6 to 10

Our Bricks Challenge camps mix LEGO building and Design Challenges to encourage problem solving and creativity in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Sessions run for 6 hours with the mornings spent introducing our theme for the day and building a moving LEGO model. Afternoons are focused on team design challenges where children use a range of materials to solve a problem aligned to our daily theme. Finally all children make something to take home each day to explain what they have done.

Robotics & Electronics Camp – Ages 10 to 13

Our Robotics & Electronics Camp is aimed at 10 to 13 year olds and will run in partnership with Edinburgh Academy.

Children will spend two days learning how to build and programme a robot, followed by 2 two days learning about electronics circuits, light sensors, sound sensors and proximity sensors. The final day will require the children to design their own combined system that solves a technical challenge. Children interested in programming who enjoy working in teams to develop their own solutions to technical problems will find this camp particularly enjoyable.

Sessions will run from 10am until 4pm as follows:

  • 6-10 Aug: Edinburgh Academy


Booking for these camps is now open for all venues.
