Krash Labs is a computer club for children in Scarborough. It is based at the YMCA in Scarborough and runs after-school, Saturdays and during the school holidays. It has gone from strength to strength since it opened in summer 2012. Now with 35 computer stations and over 100 children a week coming it has become a focal point for young geeks in the area. Whilst the majority of children play and create in Minecraft we also encourage other games including Garrys Mod, League of Legends and Kerbal Space Program amongst others.

We are also able to help those kids who are interested in learning more about computing and introduce them to programming environments. We are forging links with local businesses and helping find mentors and work placements.

Krash Labs actively encourages kids with Special Educational Needs to use Krash Labs and have had lot of success in providing a safe and encouraging environment. We are recommended by the Council Autism Outreach Team and work with the local Autism support group (FAST), NYCC Inclusion officers and Childrens Centers.
