About this Event
(Bilingual camp taught in a combination of Dutch and English by a professional, native-Dutch speaking teacher. Subsidized spots are available for children from a low-income families with a Stadspas.)
During this NewTechKids school vacation bootcamp of 5 daily workshops held at the Amsterdam Public Library, kids ages 8-12 will invent robots and tech prototypes.
Using LEGO robotics kits, kids will design, build and code in pairs using their imagination and creativity and then present them to their peers and parents at the end of each day.
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.).
Children who successfully complete the bootcamp will receive a certificate of achievement.
Classes will take place daily from 10:00 - 14:00 on the following dates:
- August 28, 29, 30, 31
- September 1
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. Girls are welcome!
A morning drink and snack will be provided. Children are required to bring their own lunches, including utensils and cups.
A minimum of 16 students is required to offer this bootcamp. Registrants will be notified 3 days prior if the camp is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.
