NEW! Micro:bit weekend clubs

Micro:bit + code

Live Online only

This new Cypher Live Online club is all about getting hands-on with the BBC micro:bit and learning the fundamentals of coding - combining arts and crafts with computational thinking. Using materials from around the house, students will programme their micro:bit - a computer ‘brain’ - to control their imaginative inventions.

With our brilliant Cypher tutors live online throughout the sessions via Zoom, kids will more confidently explore the potential of computing and be guided in making some fun gadgets from a micropet to an electronic counter. Our micro:bit clubs are great for all kinds of kids, girls and boys, and are brilliant for taking kit out of the box and getting to grips with the exciting possibilities their creativity can conjure up.

theme details

Each child’s curriculum is carefully curated to their age and ability. New students will be introduced to all themes offered and set on a path of learning and fun. Returning students will continue their learning with new content.

We will engage your child in the core concepts of coding, building on any previous knowledge and each child attending for at least three days will receive a certificate of their achievement.

For a well-rounded experience, we also incorporate outside play and other camp activities.
