ComputerXplorers offers a huge range of computing classes for children using an extensive variety of software programs and computer peripherals combined with our own unique curriculum and lesson plans.
Working in a variety of settings across Edinburgh, East Lothian, West Lothian, Midlothian, Falkirk and the Borders - from pre-schools to schools and after school clubs, as well as hospitals, family learning community venues, science festivals, museums and anywhere children gather - ComputerXplorers delivers programmes that are both educationally rewarding and enormous fun for children - so much more than a 'computer club'.
Our programmes are always engaging, educational and, most importantly, lots of fun!
The potential impact of the Coronavirus epidemic is of concern to everyone. We wanted to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of the children we work with and those of our staff is the highest priority for us.
We love sharing our excitement about the world of technology with all of the children in our classes and we are working hard to continue to share that in whatever way we can. Whether that is working with schools who continue to look after Key Workers' children or by delivering classes online we are committed to keeping the tech excitement alive!Read More
In addition to our popular face to face computing clubs and workshops we offer live online virtual computing and tech clubs for kids.
Our online sessions are delivered live in small groups by our fab team of expert tech leaders – we do not use pre-recorded activity – so your child has all the input they need.
All you need at home is an internet connection and a laptop/desktop.Read More
