Free half-term kids bootcamps

Sync is hosting a number of free bootcamps for tech-loving children this half-term.

The sessions are run in partnership with GBM Apple Solution Expert for Education. They will boost the digital skills of children aged six and over with fun activities in creativity and coding.

Code Club

Code Club will teach kids how to use Swift Playgrounds, a real programming language created by Apple. Swift is one of the top ten industry languages to learn. As a result, it will give children the skills they need to build their own apps.

Kids can also learn how to programme a spherical robot. This challenging yet fun session will see children use an iPad to guide their own real-life robot through a maze.

Creativity Club

As well as getting to grips with coding, Sync and GBM are giving kids across Manchester the chance to hone their music and filmmaking skills in Creative Club.

Video with iMovie sessions will teach children how to produce their very own film trailer from scratch. They will come up with fun film ideas, learn basic camera techniques and how to shoot footage using the iPad, before creating a professional movie trailer using the iMovie app.

For children with an interest in music, the Creative Club GarageBand session will be unmissable. Using the iPad, kids will get to grips with creating their own beats using a range of instruments. By the end of the session, they’ll know how to record their own rock, hip-hop or EDM track.

No child will be left out from boosting their digital skills as iPads are provided for all the sessions, though children are welcome to bring their own.
