Event description

Description

Challenge: discover the wonderful world of visual programming and robotics!

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

During this computer science bootcamp of four (4) workshops during the first week of January 2018, kids ages 7-12 will dive into visual programming and robotics through a variety of technology tools.

According to NewTechKids' pedagological framework, kids learn best with tangible objects. During this bootcamp, they will receive hands-on, building and programming experience with Ozobot robots, LEGO Mindstorms and other tools.

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 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.

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


- January 2, 3, 4 and 5, 2018

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. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

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.
