What we do

So much more than a computer club we run in school workshops and more!

ComputerXplorers offers a huge range of in school computing science classes for children in Scotland 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 South Lanarkshire, North Lanarkshire, Glasgow, Scotland, East Renfrewshire - from nursery schools (early years) to schools and after school clubs, as well as hospitals, family learning community venues, science festivals, museums, libraries 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!
