October Half Term Stannington Maker Camp

  • Stannington Library Sheffield, England United Kingdom (map)

Innovative and creative digital making camps for future makers

A holiday camp for making and using creativity to build inventions for aspiring young problem-solvers aged 7 to 11.

Spend the day exploring and being creative with technology:

  • Work with artists and tech professionals to learn new skills

  • Take part in hands-on activities to help you gain the skills needed to use tech creatively at home

  • Create your own inventions using upcycled and new parts - combining the physical world with the digital

Schedule

Join us for October half term - we'll be making Cyborg Pumpkins and Robot Guy Fawkes. 

Make a Cyborg Pumpkin to take home. You'll get to take old gadgets apart and use their pieces to create a Sci Fi Pumpkin. We'll take a break for lunch then finish the day by making Guy Fawkes robots. You'll use pieces found in nature to build Guy and then learn how to code the Micro:bit to transform Guy Fawkes into a robot pleading for help. We'll wrap the day up with a show and tell - parents, feel free to join us for the last 15 minutes to see what your children have been up to.
