Fire Tech

Fire Tech's mission is to give young people the tools and inspiration to become the tech creators, makers and leaders of the future. We have delivered over 30,000 learning experiences to young people across five continents. Courses include Python coding, AI, cyber security, robotics, virtual and augmented reality, and digital media production. Each workshop is designed to teach young people 21st-century skills such as design thinking, collaboration and problem-solving. All of our programmes are taught by tech-savvy teachers from some of the UK's leading universities. We run holiday camps, residentials and courses in school term times in over 20 locations across the UK.

 

Jill Hodges started the company seven years ago when she realised that she couldn’t find a way for her own kids to learn creative tech skills, either in or out of school. She wanted to provide a place where kids could get their hands dirty and experiment with a wide range of technology concepts.

 

The UK needs an additional 38,000 workers with computer science-related skills, including 21,000 computer science graduates, to meet labour demands every year – or the economy faces losing out on an estimated £33 billion a year by 2030, according to new independent economic research conducted for Amazon by Capital Economics. Fire Tech aims to play a leading role in shaping the education of the future.
