Event description
Kids ages 7-12, learn how to become tech inventors who can create cool things. Great for learning how to create technology prototypes.

About this Event

(Taught in a combination of Dutch and English.)

During this weeklong summer camp, kids ages 7-12 will transform into tech inventors who design, build and program robots and robotic devices to help people live safer, more comfortable and more environmentally-friendly lives.

Kids will dive into building and visual programming using LEGO WeDo or LEGO Mindstorms and art supplies. They'll learn about design concepts (resources, requirements, testing, iteration, best practices) and computer science concepts (algorithms, commands, loops, sequence, iteration, if-else logic, etc.).

During each class, they’ll discuss inspiring examples of technology before completing mystery challenges in pairs and presenting their prototypes.

Children who successfully complete the camp will receive a certificate of achievement.

Classes will take place everyday from 10:00 - 14:00 on the following dates:

- August 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14, 2020

The camp will be taught in a combination of English and Dutch by a 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 morning drink and snack will be provided. Children are required to bring their own lunches, including utensils and cups.

A maximum of 12 students is required to offer this camp. Registrants will be notified one week prior if the camp is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.

Location: Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam, Oosterdokskade 143 in the Junior Lab basement (5-minute walk from Centraal Station)
