Event description
Kids ages 7-12 design, build and code cool things. Great for learning how to invent technology prototypes.

About this Event

(Taught in a combination of Dutch and English.)

During this NewTechKids bootcamp of 4 daily workshops held at the Amsterdam Public Library, kids ages 7-12 will learn important computer science and programming concepts while becoming familiar with design, robotics and computer programming.

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 (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.

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:

- April 26, 28, 29 and 30, 2021 (no workshop on April 27th which is King's Day)

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

A maximum of 15 students is required to offer this camp. Registrants will be notified one week prior if the program 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)

Health Precautions

Our programs are limited to a maximum of 15 children in OBA Junior Lab which is large and well-ventilated.

- NewTechKids has used AI-based software to design floor plans for the room which determine the spacing of tables and chairs, the location of teacher, etc. Tables and chairs are placed apart to encourage social distancing amongst the children.

- NewTechKids’ teacher checks the temperature of all children with a no-contact thermometer when they arrive for each class. Kids with temperatures above 38 degrees celsius are asked to return home.

- Kids are required to wash their hands when they arrive and there are multiple hand washing breaks during every class.

- Hand sanitizer is readily available.

- Children are encouraged to wear masks but this is optional.

- Our teachers stand at a distance from kids during class discussions and while explaining computer science and programming theory. They will use a microphone so everyone can hear clearly.

- Our teachers wear masks while helping kids at their work stations.
