In our work with schools, we give pupils the chance to use the latest software. Working with us, they gain confidence in their own ability, have fun and discover how computing skills can help them in the future.

What we offer

At Kent, your students can experience the full depth and creativity of computer science. Our hands-on workshops and events on campus are targeted at different age groups.

Key Stages 2 and 3: we run occasional LEGO® robotics workshops

Key Stages 3, 4 and 5: we run workshops with Greenfoot — developing Java programs with animations.

Bringing your pupils on to campus gives them the chance to learn in a new environment. And, for older pupils, it's an opportunity for them to see what life at university might be like.

If you prefer, we are able to bring our activities into your school. 

Please get in touch if you'd like to know more.

Join the LEGO League

The FIRST LEGO League (FLL) sets scientific challenges for children aged 9-16. We hold regional events where teams compete against each other to solve the challenges.

It's a terrific day out. Pupils engage with science in a practical way and also discover the importance of teamwork and listening to others.

There's lots more information on the FIRST LEGO League UK website and on the international FIRST LEGO League website.

A guide to university for your pupils

Deciding to study at university is a big decision for any young person. Our admissions staff can visit secondary schools or sixth form colleges to talk directly to students about applying to university. They can offer advice on topics such as: 

  • studying at university
  • studying computing at university
  • the variety of computing programmes on offer
  • the UCAS applications process.

Please get in touch if you'd like to us to visit your school.
