Family Learning

Control Freak Courses

Control Freak Courses are Crumble coding and Vex robotics courses are aimed at students in year 5/6. Participants get to build their own projects using sparkles, switches and more; build remote control robots to play robo-football! We have previously run them over the summer holidays at Hull University and Pocklington School.
