Event Details

This course will be taught in a combination of English and Dutch by a professional, native Dutch-speaking teacher.

Want to get a head start developing the computer science knowledge and tech innovator mindset required to prepare for technology-related studies and/or a career in tech?

NewTechKids invites students ages 13-18 to join our tech innovator course at the Amsterdam Public Library on Saturday afternoons. During the course of five (5) weekly workshops, students will be introduced to fundamental computer science concepts such as loops (for and while), iteration, sequence, algorithms and if-else logic.

Students will discuss how tech is being deployed in a variety of industries as well as pros, cons, implications and ethics. They'll also design, build and develop tech prototypes related to specific industries in small teams using LEGO Mindstorms robots and Micro:bit micro-computers.

This course will take place on Saturday afternoons from 15:00 – 17:00 on the following dates:
- September 21, 28 
- October 5, 12, 19

The September 21st class will take place in the Maakplaats 021 space at OBA CC Amstel, Cullinanplein 1 (Amsterdam East) while the rest of classes will take place in Room 4.1 in OBA Centraal near Centraal Station.

Designed as an introductory course, it is ideal for both students who previous programming experience and students with none. The course is designed to provide advanced technology education to high school students and prepare them for computer science and programming education in higher education.

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

Location: Room 4.1, 4th Floor, Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam (OBA)/Amsterdam Public Library, Oosterdokskade 143, Amsterdam (7-minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station)
