Tinderbox Digital Schoolhouse


Tinderbox is the first Digital Schoolhouse in Scotland! 

UKIE’s Digital Schoolhouse is a not-for-profit programme which enables primary schools to experience free creative computing workshops from their local Schoolhouse. Combined with ingenious computing, the programme also engages thousands of students with its pioneering and immersive careers education. Schoolhouses are not charged for their participation in the programme, nor for the support that they receive.



Tinderbox became the first Digital Schoolhouse in Scotland from 2021 – 2023!

Tinderbox runs a range of creative workshops for schools & youth groups, bringing electronics and digital technology together with music and the arts.

From building robots to designing computer games and making synthesisers, the workshops teach about topics such as basic circuits, electronics, computer coding and software.

These workshops often cross-over with Tinderbox’s other programmes, including projects in their digital arts lab, orchestra and music hubs. This creates pathways for young people to develop their interests in different ways, and lots of crossovers between music, arts and technology.
