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?

So, what sets ACTIVE-8 apart from other holiday programmes?

  • Improves motor skills – LEGO® building involves dexterity and coordination
  • Encourages teamwork – every student will have to work together to overcome set challenges
  • Inspires creativity – design your own cities, buildings and robots with various features while considering colours, shapes and more
  • Develops problem-solving skills – focusing on problems, attention to detail and creating a solution are all a huge part of the programme
  • Boosts communication skills – builds new friendships, reinforces old friendships and encourages children to talk to each other to achieve success
  • Teaches perseverance – with some challenging tasks to overcome, everyone will have to work on their persistence, determination and perseverance to solve problems
  • Motivates confidence – being able to see your decisions turn into successes helps boost self-confidence and esteem
  •  Improves planning skills – everyone uses their lateral and forward-thinking abilities to create exciting new concepts and solutions
