Arduino - GamePal

Attention all budding coders & young gamers, we've got all the tools you need to become a tech extraordinaire.

Our Arduino Gamepal program is the perfect way to advance your child’s future-fit STEM, coding and robotics skills in a fun and creative way, far beyond what they’re taught in school.

Arduino is one of the most popular coding programs and in this course your child will learn to code their very own Gamepal using this platform.

Arduino is used worldwide to build and program all kinds of electronics projects, as it’s user-friendly and simplifies hardware programming, enabling rapid prototyping and experimentation.

This course caters to new and returning students, our coursework tailored to the experience level of the class. Returning students will build on prior learnings and stretch skills with more complex coding tasks.

Learning to code requires consistency - and our regular After School Clubs are the best way to build these necessary 21st century skills.

HOLIDAY PROGRAMS: All classes open to public enrolments
