Latest Events

As part of the Technocamps programme we deliver a variety of events to support computer science education across Wales.

Resources

There are a number of exciting resources developed allowing you to learn all about Computer Science at your own pace, or alternatively your teacher/educator could download to use in school/college or at your Technoclub. Each resource has different documents, including top tips and workbooks that you can gradually work through at your own pace, or alternatively your teacher/educator can use the other documents to teach the workshops in school/college.

The resources are graded 1-3 in terms of level of difficulty, so why not set yourself a challenge and start the journey now? Then, if you want to know more, why not try alternative resources offering a slightly different twist on the same topic, by selecting the drop down menu to the right of the resource page.
