Event Details

Inspired by Jules Verne, we are taking a group of lucky kids on an 'Around the World in 11 Weeks' adventure with computer science!

During this computer science bootcamp of eleven (11) weekly workshops, kids ages 7-12 will work in teams to become intreprid technologist explorers who rely on their imaginations, computer science concepts and a range of technology learning tools to crisscross the globe solving technology challenges. They'll become technologists, designers and programmers who use visual programming and robotics to solve challenges which gradually increase in difficulty and complexity. 

According to NewTechKids' pedagological framework, kids learn best with tangible objects. During this bootcamp, they will receive hands-on experience with Ozobot robots, Micro:bits, LEGO Mindstorms and littleBits.

In the process, kids will learn about core computer science concepts such as automation, programming, algorithms, loops, input/output, parts working together, feedback, sequences, data (numbers and Booleans), functions, variables and collections, event handling, 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.

Workshops will take place weekly on Thursdays from 16:15 - 17:45 on the following dates:


- January 11, 18, 25, 2018
- February 1, 8, 15, 22, 2018
- March 8, 15, 22, 29, 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.

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.

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.
