In The Know: It’s a tech world out there!
This week we’re looking at all things tech! The digital world is an integral part of our everyday lives and this is especially true for young people today. We have put together a few activities that your child could get involved in.
Tech Camp offers courses and residential camps to young people aged 9-17 throughout the year. They give young people the chance to explore robotics, game design coding and perhaps even invent an innovative new gadget! Young people can choose between one-day events or residential camps, which encourages them to immerse themselves completely in the tech world. If you have a young engineer in your family, read about the camps and courses on their website today.
Age Unlimited (London)
This is an exciting way to combine an interest in computers and technology with volunteering! Young people aged 14-18 can support people aged 55+ to learn digital skills, vital today for staying connected with society and keeping in touch with families. Not only that, but your child would develop skills and have the opportunity to attend a free film workshop. Visit their website to find out more, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The British Museum – Digital Workshop
The British Museum run a range of workshops for young people, and on the 4th February young people aged 13-15 could attend an event where they create their own LED badge, inspired by medals and brooches from the Museum’s collection. Tickets are free but you must book in advance if you are interested in sending your child. To book tickets and see more, click here.
At GT Scholars, we are embracing the world of technology! The GT Scholars Programme is an after-school programme for young people aged 11-16. Scholars receive support through online tutoring, mentoring, enrichment and skill-building activities that are specifically designed to improve their grades at school, help them get them into top universities and help them enter competitive careers.
