Is it possible to survive on Mars using only technology?
During this bootcamp of fourteen (14) weekly workshops, kids ages 7-9 will learn about computer science and how to use the thinking and problem-solving models behind it.
Kids will be challenged to apply computer science to develop technological solutions to survive on Mars with limited resources and challenging conditions such as no oxygen and extreme weather.
The bootcamp will integrate a mix of arts and crafts and designing and building with LEGO Mindstorms. Computer science concepts covered will include automation, programming, algorithms, loops, if-else statements, technological systems, sequence, event handling, variables, control statements, Data: Boolean, artificial intelligence and design process.
This bootcamp is designed to help kids develop computational thinking skills. All of our programs are taught by real teachers who have been trained by NewTechKids to teach computer science to primary school-aged children.
The bootcamp is ideal for children with no previous exposure to computer science and those who have previously participated in NewTechKids programs. Workshops will take place on Tuesdays from 16:15 - 17:45 on the following dates:
- April 4, 11, 18, 25
- May 9, 16, 22, 30
- June 6, 13, 27
- July 4, 11, 18
A minimum number of 16 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.
NewTechKids also promotes bilingual education and our workshops will be taught in a combination of Dutch and English.

When & Where
NewTechKids is an Amsterdam-based company on a mission to provide children in primary school with computer science and technology education (computational thinking, fundamental coding and programming concepts, algorithmic thinking, systems thinking and technological literacy), beginning at age four. NewTechKids develops computer science curriculum, lesson plans and teaching materials and our programs are delivered during school and as after-school activities. We also organize teacher training programs because we believe teachers are the best way to ensure that all primary school students receive computer science and technology education.
