Workshops We deliver innovative Workshops in computer science for young people across Wales.

Welcome to Technocamps

Our mission is to inspire, motivate and engage people with computational thinking and promote Computer Science as underpinning all aspects of modern society.

Our Programme

Since 2003, Technocamps has been providing hands-on computing workshops to inspire, motivate and engage young people. In particular, during the two school years spanning 2014-2016, we delivered an average of 9 hours of workshops in 97% of Wales’ state-backed secondary schools.

With our Playground Computing programme we deliver day-long interactive workshops in primary schools, one classroom at a time. During the 2016-2017 school year we delivered 175 workshops in primary schools to over 4000 pupils and their teachers.

With our Technoteach programme we are providing vital CPD training sessions to up-skill ICT teachers in the new computer science curriculum. In particular, we provide an NQF-level accredited qualification, the Certificate of Teaching of Computing. Over the past two years 31 teachers have been awarded this certificate following a full year of Technoteach workshops; and there are 46 teachers currently undertaking this certificate training during the 2017-2018 school year.
