COVID-19 Support for Schools and Children
The potential impact of the Coronavirus epidemic is of concern to everyone. We wanted to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of the children we work with and those of our staff is the highest priority for us.
We love sharing our excitement about the world of technology with all of the children in our classes and we are working hard to continue to share that in whatever way we can. Whether that is working with schools who continue to look after Key Workers' children or by delivering classes online we are committed to keeping the tech excitement alive!
Online computing clubs
In addition to our popular face to face computing clubs and workshops we offer live online virtual computing and tech clubs for kids.
Our online sessions are delivered live in small groups by our fab team of expert tech leaders – we do not use pre-recorded activity – so your child has all the input they need.
All you need at home is an internet connection and a laptop/desktop.
After School Computing Clubs
Awesome after school computing clubs provided by ComputerXplorers are enjoyed each week by thousands of school children across the country.
The children have such fun they don't even realise just how much they are learning: programming, creativity, storytelling, collaboration, problem solving, animation, web design, coding, forensic science, logic, video game design - the list is endless!
