Kids Maker Club
Our kids maker club is for kids with a keen interest in technology, computer programming, animation and digital media. Members are able to take part in group tutorials to learn basic skills in a variety of software and hardware. 1 to 1 support is also available for each member as well as plenty of handouts and worksheets for self directed learning. We know that every child is different and with a range of ages from 6 – 16, each member has their own area of interest and expertise. We encourage our group to work together and learn from each other. Our members are given the space and freedom to explore technology at their own pace, while having the expertise and knowledge of staff available when it’s needed.
We encourage our members to work towards the Duke of York iDEA awards. These awards provide young people with the knowledge of a wide range of digital skills and introduces concepts that will help them in the future.
