How does it work?

ComputerXplorers Academy operates from September to July in line with the school calendar ie no classes during school holidays. Children attend one session per week in term time.

Over the course of a year your child will experience a wide range of technology focusing on different aspects at different times. The big benefit of the Academy (apart from the obvious awesome tech fun) is the diversity of the offering across an extended period.

Dependent on the age of your child these are just some of the areas we are likely to cover: 3D design and printing, augmented reality, app design, digital arts, animation, game design, robotics, engineering, electronics, coding and the latest Minecraft skills.

The children see ComputerXplorers Academy as a fun place to go, be creative and learn cool new tech skills.

Parents are delighted with seeing the excitement on their children's faces and seeing what they can achieve from the educational content delivered.
