The holiday club was run by ComputerXplorers South East Scotland in association with Excel Summer Camps during August. During the mornings the children, aged between 6 & 12, learnt about exciting computer based subjects and in the afternoon they took part in sporting activities.

 

During the Lego Robotics session the children were taught how to build a robot, such as a goal keeper or lion, and then how to programme the robot to move. In the animation class, they invented their own characters and generated storyboards before creating their own animation.

 

Cameron, age 12 and Denis, age 8 described the Lego Robotics as “awesome” and “really good”.

 

Two mornings were devoted to Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) and ComputerXplorers collaborated with Five Sisters Zoo, who kindly donated hair and fibres from a range of animals to be used as ‘evidence’ for the CSI. Using digital microscopes and finger print analysis tools, the children, dressed up in CSI uniform, solved a crime scenario.

 

ComputerXplorers is the UK's leading provider of ICT education for children aged 3-13. They run exciting and fun classes in subjects like computer animation, film-making, creating video games and robotics. The classes are run in a variety of settings such as after school clubs, pre-school and nurseries, summer camps and in-curriculum time classes. ComputerXplorers provide the instructor, lesson plans, the software and peripherals.

 

Lynne Kerr who runs ComputerXplorers South East Scotland, explains why the classes were so popular:

 

“We focus on making learning fun and interactive. The children are so absorbed and engaged by what they are doing that they hardly realise they are learning. It gives them the opportunity to use their imaginations and use the latest software and technology to turn their ideas into reality. They come away with greater confidence around computers, as well as improving their team working and problem solving skills.”
