Planning a Birthday Party? For something a bit different and fun click here

The #1 provider for tech holiday camps, in school events and after school clubs.

Teaching children how to harness the power of technology by understanding how it works from the inside - enabling them to create, rather than merely consume the technology around us. We want to stop the computer from being a disposable 'magic box' that can only be developed by ‘geniuses’. Our aim is to demystify technology for children and young people, parents and teachers in a fun, relatable and no-nonsense manner.

Our courses

We'll show you how to combine your love of minecraft with your skill in Python programming to make things happen outside the machine... in the physical realm! Our resident codeguru JDave has taken the sandbox and brought it outside!

Birthday Parties

Birthday Parties

HackLab can come to your house or venue and run a birthday party activity packed with education and fun (genuinely not mutually exclusive!):Does your kid love Minecraft? We can do that. Do they like dance music and want to code their own tunes? We can do that too. How about building Remote-Controlled Robots? Yep, got you covered. Playing with the same equipment that’s currently on the ISS? Sure.

Don't take our word for it

Without any doubt he enjoyed it! He said he wished school was like this. We were jet-lagged having returned from holiday the previous day, but he jumped out of bed every morning - and fell asleep in the car going home!

Parent

It was a perfect course for them to do as they love computer games and we got a Pi kit last year, but they have not done anything with it. Since doing the course, they got it out immediately and started playing with it.

Mrs P. Watt

My daughter came back really enthused and wanting to go another day. Working a full day on a fixed project was a really nice way of getting an idea of what types of projects are possible. Plus she said she made new friends, so she enjoyed the social aspect of the club.

Ms Murray

He had a fantastic time at HackLab, he was full of it when he got home each day and is still excited about everything he has learnt. Thank you for the time and effort everyone has put in to making it a wonderful experience!
