Each term we will discover STEAM in an new exciting topic. Undertaking experiments, building, crafting, constructing, learning early coding and computing principles. We inspire and instill the foundations of STEAM learning; creativity, co-operation, collaboration, tenacity, problem-solving, critical thinking, whilst absorbing facts and information in an environment with a dynamic and creative approach.

The mini mumblers attended the first two summer sessions at the beginning of the school holidays and so I thought who better to review the session than a nine-year old herself?
” Today I went to Technology in Play with my little sister. There were about 20 other kids there, most of them were about 6-8 years old but there were a couple of us older and a few younger. We all brought our own packed lunches- mine was a ham wrap. The topic for the day was the body and we were learning all about the digestive system.
First we introduced ourselves to everyone and then the teachers introduced themselves to us. Then we split up into 2 different groups. The group that I was in went to learn about all the different organs and the digestive system and the other group learnt about the brain and the nerves.
We did modelling and used bits of junk to make a digestive system. We then took the models outside to test to see if they worked. My favourite bit was squeezing the pretend food through the intestines and into the pretend toilet!
We learned all about the recovery position and we worked with partners to practice on each other. We also got to stick our hands in a big doll which looked like a lady- it was filled with red aqua beads and we had to hunt around to find all of the organs.
We also played loads of games all about the body. We also read books about the body, had two outdoor playtimes and a lunch break. I had a REALLY good time at the summer camp and I can’t wait for next week!”

What do Technology in Play say about themselves?
“At Technology in Play we are dedicated to generating passion and enthusiasm in young people by providing the environment to engage and apply technology with a dynamic and creative approach. We are excited about all the possibilities that technology offers; from robotics at the forefront of medical research to how technology is enabling the expanding reach of education, empowering young people from all walks of life. As parents, we understand how we face the task of raising children in a world that is rapidly changing and how important technology will be to their future. We aspire to empower children to become more than consumers of technology; to be creative and walk their chosen paths with no limitations.

Disclaimer: Technology in Play did not charge us to attend the play session however my nine-year old daughter assures me that she was in no way bribed or co-erced into writing this glowing review! Both girls had a great time!
