British Motor Museum - Saturday Club
Join us at the British Motor Museum for our Robotics Saturday Club. Your child will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of Robotics over a 6 week period of exciting workshops, and get the chance to explore our extensive collection of British Cars. Suitable for 5 – 11 year olds, your child can enjoy a fantastic Saturday Club where they will consolidate and improve their knowledge of Robotics and Coding and cover many of the topics in the national curriculum for computing while having fun and making new friends.
We will be running our Saturday Club in partnership with ComputerXplorers, a specialist education technology company running computing classes and after school clubs for schools throughout the Cotswolds and Wyvern area. ComputerXplorers also work with schools in Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire and all activities are linked to the National Curriculum focusing on combining learning with fun.
The Saturday Club will run from 10.30am – 11.30am for 5 – 8 year olds and 11.45am to 12.45am for 9 – 11 year olds and will be staffed by ComputerXplorers and the British Motor Museum Saturday Club Team, all of whom are CRB checked.
Cost per child is £45 for a 6 week block with free entry to the Museum for one accompanying adult.
