Computing school trips

Information Technology

Computing is a fundamental part of our everyday lives. All businesses rely on computers and therefore, competent computer skills are essential in a working environment.

To enhance your classroom teaching, there are many computing school trips you can choose that demonstrate how computers have become a vital part of the commercial world. Discover how information technology is used in areas such as problem solving, communication systems and data analysis.

The trips below have a strong computing focus, or have dedicated workshops, shows, or hands on exhibits that will really help your students understand computing in context.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect Computing experience for your school trip.





STEMbotics-Robotics & Coding


We have delivered STEM/Computing workshops to thousands of children across the UK and have had glowing reviews from children and teachers after every single one. We're also trusted by the Royal Air Force to deliver educational STEM programmes across the UK on their behalf and have earned the status of RAF STEM Education Partners. The children that take part in STEMbotics will be given opportunities to learn new skills and problem-solve through a series of age-appropriate competition challenges. All of our sessions achieve Computing curriculum objectives in each key-stage. In KS1 and Lower KS2 we use LEGO WeDo to introduce students to instructional robotic builds and entry-level block coding. Students progress to designing and coding their own robots and competing against class...

Coding for FUN or as a REWARD!


Computing education allows students to acquire the computing skills that are necessary to succeed in our modern society. The key part of the computing curriculum is computer science, which entails learning about the core principles of computation and information, and learning how digital systems operate and how to use this knowledge through programming.

Over time, students will obtain the necessary skills that are required to create systems, programmes and a range of content. The knowledge that is gained through a computing course will enhance a student's future prospects after they leave education and enter the working world. In addition, computing can also enhance other core academic subjects such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM subjects), as they are all interlinked with computer skills. Therefore, this means that students who study a STEM subject would also find a computing school trip beneficial to their own study. Consequently, you could join up with another teacher from another subject and take a combined group. For example, The National Museum of Computing is designed around the Computing curriculum at GCSE, A Level, and Level 2 or 3 equivalents. However, students can also benefit from the school trip if they are studying Mathematics, Design and Technology, Information and Communication Technology, and History.
