Event Details

(Taught in a combination of Dutch and English.)

 

During this weeklong summer camp, kids ages 7-12 will design robots which can play popular (no tech) games. Kids will begin by designing and building robots to play traditional games before finishing by designing their own robot game, complete with rules, strategies and point systems.

 

(Please note: This is not an online game design camp!)

 

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 design and programming 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:
- July 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24, 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 classes 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)
