D-Lab Clubs & Community Programmes

Education is not the filling of a pot but the lighting of a fire.
— W.B. Yeats

Here at D-Lab we want to light a fire for you, and provide you with opportunities to learn, grow and develop. Whether you are young or old, male or female, technically adept or not, our programme of activities has something for you which will inspire, intrigue or inform:

Our Coding Club run in conjunction with Rocket Coders is helping to develop the next generation of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs 'wannabes'.

Our LEGO clubs, generally run on Saturdays, have been hugely popular, and we even know how to make LEGO fun for the grown-ups, helped along with a glass of wine or two!

Drone racing is literally taking off. Our Drone Club programme is currently on hold but do contact us to register your interest or if you'd like to get involved and make it happen.

We have run photography courses and masterclasses in the past. Again, do let us know if you'd like to be kept informed.

DIY Shed is a brilliant initiative  which aims to bring together the older generations to indulge in traditional workshop activities; making and repairing things and enjoying a natter at the same time. We're looking to get this up and running soon.

Architecture Club provides an opportunity for those aged 14 to 18 to understand and explore cutting edge initiatives in this discipline which blends the creative with the scientific. We have a number of architects based at D-Lab and have strong expertise in this area.

And our Mentoring programme is unique. We have access to a wide pool of DBS-checked (Disclosure & Barring Service) mentors from a wide variety of creative professions who are willing and able to advise and guide you as you seek to learn and grow. 

We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours.”  —  John of Salisbury
