The Future Computer Scientist Summer Experience gives students aged 12-14 a 360-degree, fully-immersive experience of working as a computer scientist in London.
Over the course of 10 days, students aged 12-14 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of computer science that one can imagine: designing your own video game with experts, meeting with a state of the art robot and designing your own software.
Also available on the Summer Experience are daily Q&A sessions with computer scientists, a visit to The National Museum of Computing, a cyber security themed ‘escape room’, and a full day dedicated to ‘Personal Career Coaching’.
Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful computer scientist.

In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is completely cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will receive a refund. We have never yet had to cancel a London summer experience, having successfully delivered programmes during the summers of 2020 and 2021, with strict social distancing and excellent feedback. We shall of course adhere to all Covid-related government guidelines in place at the time of the programme and keep student safety as the highest priority.
If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full.
