Event description

Description

(Taught in a combination of Dutch and English.)

During this computer science summer bootcamp, kids ages 7-12 will learn about computer science concepts (algorithms, commands, loops, sequence, iteration, if-else logic, etc.) by designing, building and programming robots to survive different geographic conditions around the world.

Kids will complete class challenges by diving into visual programming and robotics using LEGO WeDo, LEGO Mindstorms and arts supplies.

During each workshop, they’ll discuss inspiring examples of technology before learning about computer science theory. They’ll then complete class challenges which involve designing, building and programming technology prototypes in pairs or small teams.

Our summer bootcamp will be an ideal environment in which to experiment, experience failure and practise perseverance as part of the learning process in a fun and safe learning environment.

Children who successfully complete the bootcamp will receive a certificate of achievement.

Workshops will take place everyday from 10:00 - 13:00 on the following dates:
- July 29, 30, 31, August 1 and 2, 2019

The bootcamp will be taught in a combination of English and Dutch by a professional teacher with specialised training in computer science. The curriculum and workshops are based on NewTechKids’ pedagogy which focuses on concept-context learning and the use of tangible objects.

Our bootcamp is ideal for children with no previous exposure to design and computer science and those who have previously participated in NewTechKids programs.

Children will receive a snack and drink during each class. Children are encouraged to bring food from home if they require more.

A minimum of 15 students is required to offer this program. Registrants will be notified one week prior if the program is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.

Location: Junior Lab (basement), Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam (OBA)/Amsterdam Public Library, Oosterdokskade 143, Amsterdam (7-minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station)
