ACTIVE-8 2022


What is ACTIVE-8?

ACTIVE-8 is a school holiday programme like no other. Combining STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) with LEGO® , children will learn to code their own robots, gain confidence through LEGO® challenges both inside and outside of the classroom, lead teams and generally have fun while learning essential skills and boosting their personal development.

We want to activate young minds and get them thinking about the bigger picture and what the world of the future may look like – which will more than likely include robotics.

What Makes ACTIVE-8 Different?
