About Technocamps

Technocamps has delivered over 1500 workshops to over 35,000 young people across Wales on programming, app development, games development, robotics and much more. The project is led by Swansea University, with University Hubs based at Aberystwyth, Bangor, Cardiff, Cardiff MET, Glyndŵr and the University of South Wales, so our teams have been able to run Workshops across the length and breadth of Wales.

All our resources are freely accessible online giving young people the chance to continue to learn Computer Science at their own pace from home and school.

Why not take a look our Facebook account, join us on Twitter and on our Linkedin Group to see some of our success stories and get engaged in discussions.
