Community computer workshops from ComputerXplorers

Exciting children or family computing and technology workshops for community events!

Looking for a fun and unusual way to encourage children and families to engage with your community events? Including hands-on, interactive activities using computing or technology to highlight your own theme is a real hit with children and adults of all ages.

The interest levels soar when you can use coding, robotics, 3D printing, Minecraft, film-making or engineering to tell your story.

Be inspired by some of the community computing activities we have run and get in touch for a chat about how we can tailor an event that will work for you. We work across all parts of the UK.

Museums Festival brought to life with Minecraft

Museums Festival brought to life with Minecraft

Phenomenally creative designs were carefully constructed by the participants in museum workshops to celebrate the life and legacy of John Muir. Minecraft provided the ideal environment to re-create the landscapes John Muir loved, and enabled participants to understand and explore his legacy. Paisley Museum workshops invited visitors to recreate local landmarks in Minecraft.

Minecraft is immensely popular and can be applied to a huge range of themes.

“Visitor feedback from the workshops has been brilliant! I will definitely be recommending ComputerXplorers!”

Science Festivals – something different for children and families

ComputerXplorers have provided a huge range of practical, exciting, hands-on, interactive sessions at many science festivals around the country. Sessions are always tailored to the requirements of the individual event and can be delivered in the way that suits you.

This can be back to back 45-60 minute sessions; short drop-in sessions for parent and child, or longer more structured sessions for visiting school parties.

Robotics, video game design, app developer, music producer, Minecraft, 3D design and print, and augmented reality are always popular, and can be linked into your chosen themes as needed.
