Ballincollig 945am - Autumn 2021 Term - Senior Group

Designer Minds Clubs 2021!

Designer Minds weekly clubs are for curious kids who love to design, create, code and experiment! Through fun, interactive activities, children from 4th to 6th class will become confident with Science, Design and Technology, the most sought-after skills of the century! Your child will get hands-on with new projects, challenges and experiments every week so they will never get bored. You can register a child for a different time/venue or age group here.


STEAM at Designer Minds

Our curriculum runs for 2 years. This means that if your child attends our spring, summer and autumn sessions for 2 years, they will have completed our entire programme.

Each term is different. Of course, we always focus on the STEAM topics, science, technology, engineering, art and maths but the projects, activities and challenges are different every time.

Coming up this time, here’s a sneak peek!

  • Build LEGO robots, learn to code and discover how to get those robots to do exactly as you command!
  • Germs are everywhere! Let’s do some gross experiments and see if you can find any!
  • Did you know that there is such a thing as a Space architect? Well, you can be one too! Design buildings in Minecraft for use in outer space!
  • Bridge building competitions! How long can you make it? How strong can you make it? How awesome will your bridge be?
  • Learn to mix your own musical masterpiece and explore the magical art of music technology.

There will be more! Art and inventions and energy and marble machines! Come along and see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed, because kids never get bored at Designer Minds! ?

You can register a child for a different time, venue or age group here. If your child wishes to continue attending Designer Minds after completing 2 years (many kids do!), then we welcome them with open arms. They will find that we will have added new activities and others remain the same. But what is definitely different is that a child who is 2 years older will approach old challenges with fresh eyes, new skills and renewed excitement!

Please be advised that your child must be eligible to participate in group activities. If your child has a tendency to run away or has behavioural difficulties, please contact us in advance of booking.

What is STEAM?

S is for Science

Every child is a scientist! They love to ask, “why?”. At our clubs and camps we give children the opportunity to try experiments that they might not get a chance to do at home or at school: rollercoaster physics, the microscopic world, electric circuits, chemical reactions, rockets, slime and more...we’ll get hands on with a different science experiment every term.
