Fire Tech Camp along with Bristol 2015 Ltd is offering a series of new environmentally-focussed technical camps for children in the local vicinity.

The new camp will show children and teenagers fabulous skills including how to code, build computer games and even programme robots working around ‘green themes!

Greentech Camp runs from 7th to 10th April at Bristol Grammar School. Children will be taught by an army of experienced coders, programmers and university students.  The course ensures that young people not only leave with new technical skills, but also gain valuable experience in a fun and exciting environment. Fire Tech Camp is aiming to offer the Greentech Camps in London, Manchester and Brighton in 2016.

The new Greentech Camp is split into three sub camps to cater for all ages and levels: Video Game Design, Python Programming and Physical Computing with Arduino:

Video Game Design shows children (aged 9+) how to create original games, with a focus on themes such as eco-friendly driving, or saving energy.

Older students (aged 14+) can either use Python (the coding language most widely taught in senior schools and universities) to tackle topical issues, or get stuck into electronics with an Arduino microcomputer. Campers on this stream will wire up temperature, light and heat sensors and programme robots to interact with the physical environment – a definite exciting activity to occupy young minds!

Camp costs:

£350 per student and participants can sign up for Video Game Design, Python Programming, or Physical Computing with Arduino

Note: Advanced booking is required.
