We loved the variety and integration of your courses. They seemed to have a natural flow from one to the other and the kids were able to apply what they had learnt in one area to the next. Nexgen staff were highly attentive (to the kids) and had a great attitude. Overall - a really positive experience for my son. ~ Shanti Bedard. ~

Our children attended the camp encouraged by both of us. As it turned out, they had a fantastic time! At the end of each day, they were bursting with stories about what they had learnt and were always excited to explain the day's activities. The workshops were informative, fun and highly interactive and the children loved it! ~ Luca & Janice Febbraio ~
A very well run and organised holiday camp. My son really enjoyed his week and loved coming home with a robot that he had programmed. We were very impressed with the skills the kids learnt. Coding is something all children should learn and Nexgen Codecamp was a great introduction to this! Thank you.

Thanks again for this amazing organisation and the kindness from all the people involved! My kids went for the 4 mornings and always told me that they could ask some help anytime :) They loved bringing back their own creation ( 3D, robotic) and my daughter who initially was not keen on coming was very happy to learn new things and be able to challenge herself !

My son (nearly 13) did a 2 day Codecamp in the summer holidays and was thrilled with what he learned and achieved, while creating his game. Despite the very hot weather, he was super keen to go both days and learn more, he said the teachers were great, patient and really informative in a fun way. He'd love to do some more and take it to the next level. Thanks!

Pete and the team were very friendly and helpful and I was able to make a robot, do 3D printing and learnt lots of new things. I would like to do this again in the next school holidays.
~ Nivara, Yr5 ~
It was one of the best weeks I ever had because it taught a lot of things such as how to use Stencyl, Tupi, Sketchup and Arduino. I still use some of these applications with my computer !
~ Aurore, Yr5 ~
I had a great time and I discovered new programs that I did not know about. Also whenever I needed help or didn't understand something the teachers would kindly help me.
~ Tristan, Yr6 ~
It was great fun, the teachers were very helpful and I loved the Robotics!
~ Ben, Yr5 ~
Loads of fun, learnt lots of stuff, liked hanging out with my friends, would do it again.
~ Lachlan, Yr5 ~
it was super fun! I liked the robotics and animation best. The instructors were able to answer all my questions.

GAME FEST- April School Holidays

This April, we will be going back to our roots, coding games! Having had a blast with all kinds of Technology over the last 3 years, we thought it would be great to revisit the game coding landscape.

For those in Years 6+ Javascript & Phaser

We will be using the World's most popular coding language (Javascript) and the best Game framework out there at the moment (Phaser). Over 4 days we will design and build an arcade game, using animation & design techniques & coding skills - all under the watchful eye of our fantastic instructors.

This workshop is best suited to students who have done Codecamp before and built games in drag-and-drop environments and want to take the next step in their coding journey.

NOTE: For both workshops, we will be covering basic coding skills in the first day.

Workshop(s) length: 4 days

Our main purpose - to teach that learning can and should be fun!

Cost is $380 for a 4 day workshop with an additional $5/day for a laptop. Group discount (2 or more people) is a whopping 20%

Location: Forestville Public School STEAM Hub

Nexgen Tech Meets

Nexgen Tech Meets are where the parents and children from the local community come together to learn. A 'community' could be a school, a church, a club or even a suburb. In Term 2 2018, we held our first Tech Meet series at St Luke's Junior School in Dee Why on the Northern Beaches. This was received very well and we are now looking forward to holding more in 2019 and beyond.

Tech Meets are for both children and parents. The emphasis is on spending quality time with your son/daughter, whilst encouraging the children to take responsibility for their own learning. They normally run for 1.5 hours in the evening, from 6pm-7:30pm - giving time for parents to come home from work a bit earlier and time to grab some dinner before the start.

Our next Tech Meet will be in Term 2 @ Forestville Public School starting in week 4
