Wild Animals! with Lego WeDo

We'll also be learning about motors, sensors, gears and pulleys. No previous experience required. Models built: Dancing Birds and Roaring Lion.

Create your own Stop-motion 'Claymation' Movie!

44th Brighton Scout HQ, Patcham, Brighton

Lights, camera, action! In this workshop, students will work in pairs to create their own short stop-motion film using HUE Animation software and webcams! We'll be creating characters out of modelling clay and learning how this medium allows us to create some cool on-screen effects! We'll also be building sets and scenery using craft supplies and learning about stop-motion technology. After the workshop, the students' movies can be emailed home.

Use the magic of Minecraft to explore 'inside' the human body! We'll learn about two very important systems: the respiratory (breathing) and cardiovascular (heart and blood) systems. Students will work as a team with a teacher inside a virtual world using 'Minecraft EDU', the educator version of the popular sandbox game which provides a safe and interactive learning environment.

Musical Robots! with Lego Mindstorms Robotics

44th Brighton Scout HQ, Patcham, Brighton

Create musical robots by coding and building with Lego Mindstorms! We'll explore all the different ways we can create sound using the robotics kits: by creating robotic instruments using sensors, building robots to play existing instruments, and by coding our own compositions on screen! We'll finish up with some robotic solos, duets and even a robot orchestra!

Intro to 3D Printing & Computer-aided Design


Get hands-on with the latest design-and-make technology in this enjoyable 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D printing workshop! Students need no prior experience, but still get straight into modelling a simple item on professional 3D CAD software, and then watch it come to life on a 3D printer, ready to take away by the end of the session.

In association with Weald Technology and featuring Guest Educator Phil Edwards.
