Being able to explore a hobby with parents can be fantastic for children. As such, we run a wide range of family events, mainly hack jams. In a typical event, we set up teams for pair programming tasks, with one coming up with ideas for solving a problem, and the other actually building out the program (before switching roles).

Utilising popular games and hardware like Minecraft, micro:bit and Raspberry Pi, we create fun and exciting events for students and parents all year round.

Computing Lessons

As part of our programme, we work directly with a number of schools. In most cases, we'll run CPD sessions for teachers, but we often run events specifically for pupils, teaching inventive and fun Computing classes.

With exa.foundation run by a CAS Master Teacher, we're able to create engaging sessions for students at any level, whether that involves creating custom lesson plans for teachers or actually coming in to run sessions.

Digital Makers

Digital Makers are young learners who are particularly engaged with technology, typically being significantly more advanced than peers - often creating a problem when it comes to engagement in class. At exa.foundation, we've worked to support digital makers in a number of ways.

We provide direct support to teachers to help Digital Makers, including resources and activities. Beyond this, exa.foundation runs a programme of events aimed at Digital Makers - sessions for Computing clubs, support at local Raspberry Jams, and more.

An important aspect of the work that we do at exa.foundation is the availability of the support we provide - we don't believe in limiting our work to any one area. As such, we run student-aimed events across the whole country (head to our exa.foundation events page for a full list).

We organise most of our events following a request from a school or club in the area - if you're interested in us organising a Computing event near you, just get in touch via any of the below. If you're an Exa Education customer, we'll typically prioritise your request, while still running a wide range of events for non-Exa customers.
