NewTechKids Programming and Lego Mindstorm Bootcamp: 10-12 years

Has your child heard of Alan Turing and Enigma, or finite-state automata’? And not just because of the recent movie about his life. After this four-week bootcamp, your child will know about Turing and a lot more technology​ and programming​ concepts. Children will discover the basics of programming and automation through a mix of crafts, pen and paper activities and three classes devoted to teaching kids to program Lego Mindstorm robots. Concepts covered include programming, automation, commands, variables, ​feedback ​systems, design and testing, and algorithms. Classes taught in a combination of English and Dutch.

Please note: During the workshops, children will work in small teams to program NewTechKids’ Lego Mindstorm robots which cost approximately 400 euro per robot.
