Event Details

Bootcamp for Week #1: Rise of the techno-lympians!

During this morning computer science bootcamp of five (5) workshops during the Mei vakantie (April - May school vacation), kids ages 7-12 will explore visual programming and robotics by developing technology prototypes to automate a variety of sports.

Kids will receive hands-on, building and programming experience with Ozobot robots, littleBits and LEGO Mindstorms. In the process, kids will learn about core computer science concepts such as automation, programming, algorithms, loops, input/output, parts working together, feedback, sequences, variables, and design and testing. To help them develop their collaboration skills, they will work in small teams for most of the activities.

This bootcamp is designed to help kids develop computational thinking skills: adopting thought processes required to solve problems and create solutions using computers. NewTechKids promotes bilingual education and our workshops will be taught in a combination of Dutch and English.

Workshops will take place daily from 10:00-13:00 on the following dates:

- April 30, May 1, 2, 3 and 4, 2018

This bootcamp is ideal for children with no previous exposure to computer science and those who have previously participated in NewTechKids programs. All of our programs are taught by professional teachers with specialised computer science training.

Light snacks and drinks will be provided and children can also bring healthy food from home.

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

The bootcamp is organised in partnership with Maakplaats 021, the Amsterdam Municipal Library's initiative to offer Maker spaces in its branches.

NewTechKids

NewTechKids is a company on a mission to provide children in primary school with computer science and technology education (computational thinking, algorithmic thinking, programming, systems thinking, design and prototyping and technological literacy). NewTechKids develops computer science curriculum, lesson plans and teaching materials for children ages four to 12 and our programs are delivered during and after school as well as well as during school holidays. We also organize teacher training programs because we believe that training primary school teachers is the best way to bring computer science education to all children.
