HackLab Holiday Camps

HackLab camps are where it’s at. Over the school breaks, budding programmers, engineers, gamers and makers join us at prestigious tech venues across the city where they use different technologies and coding languages to accomplish fun and inspirational projects.

Group sizes are kept small to ensure close mentorship and guidance from our camp experts. No previous experience is necessary for any of our courses (unless specifically stated) and are designed to allow students to move at their own pace. Every day starts at 9am and ends at 5pm.

All of our courses can be taken more than once; there is always more to discover and new skills to learn!

The day starts at 9am and finishes at 5pm. We schedule plenty of breaks and non screen time, this is what happens at a typical HackLab day: 

8.30am – 9.00am: Drop off and registration, ready for 9am start.
9.00am – 10.30am: Let’s get the day started! We normally begin the morning with an unplugged activity, related to the content for the day to stretch our brains, warm up the imagination and make new friends.
10.30am – 11.00am: We have a 30 minute morning break for a snack and a drink. Moving out of the classroom, grab a book, a comic, pack of cards or maybe even some juggling balls!
11.00am – 12.30pm: It’s boot up time. Plug in the tech and get acquainted with the platforms we will be using that day.
12.30pm – 1.30pm: Lunch time! We take a full hour for lunch where we normally run around outside, play Frisbee, football, skipping, do handstands, whatever takes your fancy! If it’s cold and raining we stay in, play board games, card games and sometimes watch a cartoon.
1.30pm – 3.00pm: Back to the lab, get creating!
3.00pm – 3.30pm: Afternoon break. Give those brain cells a rest!
3.30pm – 5.00pm: Final section of the day, finish off your projects before wrap up.
5.00pm – 5.30pm: Pickups and home time.

  • Intro to 3D Printing & Design

    3D Printing is an amazing breakthrough in manufacturing and prototyping, and it’s only getting better every day. Think about it: the International Space Station has a 3D printer now, so that instead of having to send a piece of equipment up on the next rocket (which costs millions of pounds), NASA just have to email it to them! Incredible! We’re going to get you set up on TinkerCAD, an online design program that is intuitive to use, friendly for all and supports any 3D printer on the market.
