Here’s what some of our Machine Makers have to say about our club
Before Skyrock Camp I could only do Block code. I learnt this week how to write script!
I can now write my own apps! I can now write my own apps!
"I was always fascinated by the presence of technology in our lives along with its potential to do good. This interest inspired me to learn how to code and discover how all these transformative things-of-awesomeness' come to existence so that I could learn how to create and partake in this revolution."

Here’s what some our awesome coaches have to say about coding
Unleash the Machine Maker in your child today
We’re on a mission to help them find their tech superpower, give them a boost of creative confidence, and remind them how fun it is to learn new skills so you make better things.
Take control of your child’s relationship with technology and reserve their space today.
What is a tech club, and how is it different from a regular class?
TECH CLUBS are after-school and weekend clubs where kids learn to create, connect and collaborate with each other through technology and invention. No textbooks, just projects, since we learn through making. No tests, just showcases, since we work towards competitions or events. No grades, just badges (like Scouts) and belts (like Martial Arts), since we like kids to learn at their own pace and feel free to be original. In these clubs the students feel like they belong to something, have fun and make friends, and they are intrinsically motivated to be creative. The Tech club spirit is the secret ingredient for unlocking creativity and confidence in kids. Each club has its own charter and values, social events and field trips, coaches and ambassadors, and uniform and equipment.Our tech clubs will be replacing all classes and programs.
How do I get started?
1. Download our curriculum and schedule to pick the club that’s right for you. 2. Complete the registration form to reserve your space. 3. Review FAQs to understand how Tech Clubs work. 4. Make a payment and begin. New students are encouraged to begin with a 1-hour induction to the club and then sign up if they like it.
What are the different options to choose from?
We currently have 5 clubs for elementary schools kids: Young Inventors Club - Making Code Wizards - Coding Game Creators - Game Machine Makers - Robotics Fashion Engineers: Fashion tech We also have the Nano STEAM Club for kids aged 4-6 years old, and the Mega Coding club for kids aged 11-14.
What is the learning style?
The MIT professor and founder of Scratch, Mitch Resnik, recently published a book showing how a creative learning experience is made up of Projects, Peers, Passion, and Play. We fundamentally agree with him. We believe that the child that is doing the most making and inventing is the child that is doing the most learning.Our coaches are there to make sure they are challenged, that they are learning something new always, and that they are pushed to do the most creative work they’ve ever done before.
Are clubs taught in English, Chinese, or both?
Classes are predominantly taught in English. When stated otherwise or specifically requested, class will be taught by a bilingual coach or by an English-speaking coach with a Chinese-speaking teaching assistant.
