About this Event
(Bilingual camp taught in a combination of Dutch and English.)
A limited number of discounted places are available for kids with a Stadspas.
THEME: Around the World in 5 Weeks
During this NewTechKids after-school bootcamp on Thursday afternoons, kids ages 8-12 will design, build and code a series of robots and tech prototypes which relate to different places, geographies and climates around the world. The bootcamp will take place at the Amsterdam Public Library near Centraal Station.
Kids will dive into building and visual programming using LEGO Mindstorms and art supplies. They'll learn about design concepts (resources, requirements, testing, iteration, best practices) and computer science concepts (coding, algorithms, commands, loops, sequence, iteration, if-else logic, etc.).
During each class, they’ll discuss inspiring examples of technology before completing challenges in pairs and presenting their prototypes.
Classes will take place on Friday afternoons from 16:30 - 18:00 on the following dates:
- June 22, 29
- July 6, 13, 20
Kids are asked to bring a snack which they will consume at the the beginning of class.
This bilingual camp will be taught by a native Dutch-speaking professional teacher with specialised training in computer science. The curriculum and workshops are based on NewTechKids’ pedagogy which focuses on concept-context learning and the use of tangible learning tools.
Our camp is ideal for children with no previous exposure to design and computer science and those who have previously participated in NewTechKids programs.
A minimum of 14 students is required to offer this camp. Registrants will be notified 3 days prior if the camp is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.
