After School Clubs
Enhance your extra curricular offer with a Hepp DT After School Club…
Not every child is interested in sports, dance or music. Therefore, offer your children the opportunity to get hands on at a Hepp DT After School Club instead.
Our extremely popular after school clubs run project work for either 5 or 6 weeks. And in that time, children will experience the entire design cycle. They will design their product, make their product using a variety of tools and materials and evaluate their work.
Hepp DT After School Clubs are limited in availability and location.
