Computer fun for kids – October holiday in Edinburgh

For parents, the October holiday can often pop up unexpectedly with little plans being made. Perhaps you’ll need to book time off work to watch the kids or book a last minute holiday to do something with the time. Computer Xplorers has got it covered this year!

From creating Lego Robots to Stop Motion Animation, Musical Madness and Minecraft Mania! Kids aged 7 to 13 yrs can spend one off days or the whole week at the computer camp arranged at St. George’s School for Girls on Garscube Terrace in Edinburgh. They will have great fun but also the programming element of the course will help enhance their knowledge and problem solving skills, perhaps from a new perspective to their usual lessons at school.

The full breakdown of the half term week, 12th – 16th Oct, is below.
