Saturday or After School  

Saturday 1:30 - 4:30pm , After School class runs 3:45 to 5:00pm (open 3:30)

Can’t wait for the holidays and need a course now? Sign up for our After School or Saturday courses and get started with your computer learning now. Our term time classes tend to be smaller, and focused to what you want to learn. Let us know which of our programmes interest you, and we’ll do a course on it.

     The programmes which lend themselves best to the term time structure are: Scratch, Python, Web Design, Discovery Computing, Creating 2D and 3D games (using Unity), that being said, if there is another course that appeals and you want to do during the term, contact us and we will see what we can do.     Mathematics tuition also available. Mathematics underpins pretty much every aspect of computing. As such, a working understanding of mathematics will greatly aid you in understanding computers. This course aims to get you that understanding. We can also help with preparation for NCEA.

School Holidays: 

- Minecraft ExplorationExplore the world of Minecraft! In this freeform course, students pick their own goals and work towards them together. At the start of the week, a modpack is chosen by the group and the students explore it in their own time. This could involve transforming themselves into monsters, destroying pillager outposts and raids, heading to the moon and beyond—the possibilities are endless.

-Minecraft ProgressionThis highly structured course is aimed to be a bridge between Minecraft Exploration and our programming courses. Students will start by creating a fairly standard Minecraft base, then they will utilise redstone and some of the tools provided by mods in order to automate it. Along the way, students will develop their programming skills, as well as learning a host of other useful abilities (including efficiency analysis). By the end of the course, the students will be well prepared to take the leap and do one of our Python courses.

- A Discovery Course In Computing Begin a voyage of discovery to further each holidays. Discover the different areas of computing, find out what is best for you and answers to your questions. Covers aspects of all classes.

-New - Learn to Code and Create 3D GamesUse Unity to build your very own game! You will learn to code and create 3D games and realise given enough time and resources, you could create anything in Unity. As students create their own personal projects, they will learn to manage the process from start to finish: outlining their concept, setting project milestones, and tracking progress. Learn the fundamentals of collision physics.
