Explorers


SCROLL DOWN

Explorers


One of the most important skills for the future

By 2026, it’s estimated that hundreds of thousands of new jobs will be tech-focussed. Many of the children in our classes will be just starting their careers by then, and we want to make sure that they have the skills and confidence they need to succeed.

Using interactive and engaging coding projects, students build fluency and confidence in computing and develop their creativity and problem solving skills. Many of our Explorers use the course for the skills section of their Duke of Edinburgh Awards, and often go on to take the Computing GCSE, inspired by their successes.

What we cover


What we cover


Our courses are for 8-15 year olds, and run on Saturdays in London for ten weeks during term time. Each class is an hour and a half, during which students work through our JavaScript modules. The classes are taught by a team of instructors who are current students at Imperial College London. We aim to have five children to each instructor in Explorers so children receive individual support.

Our courses introduce and develop skills in JavaScript, one of the most widely used programming languages by professionals today. Students complete quizzes and tutorials to build their understanding of a coding skill, and then test out what they’ve learned by creating a game or app.

Guided project tutorials

Students are introduced to key topics and begin immediately applying what they’re learning through mini activities - building confidence in their coding vocabulary.

Topics and quizzes

Students move step-by-step through the creation of animations, games and applications from scratch, applying their knowledge in a variety of practical scenarios.

Open ended challenges

Students are given a coding challenge brief and some suggestions - the rest is up to them. They can be as imaginative as they like, while using the skills they've learned.
