Cape Town Science Centre Holiday Programme

Visit the Cape Town Science Centre this July Holiday for fun holiday entertainment for the kids.

With less than one month to go until the Winter School Holidays, you are probably scratching your head and wondering what to do with your kids this holiday… We have the answer for you! 

Sign them up for one of the awesome camps or courses running at the Cape Town Science Centre. 

Minecraft Courses

MINECRAFT IS BACK! Think Minecraft is just a video game? Think again! Create, explore and put your problem-solving skills to the test, with step by step instructions construct your own village complete with a thriving population, housing, machinery, food production and much more. Then use the Redstone feature to brighten up your experience. Many schools – even universities – are adopting the Minecraft platform to help with reading, writing, maths and science. There has never been a better time to develop your STEM skills (science, technology, engineering and maths) through coding and game design.
