2019 Christmas Vacation Bootcamp for 7-12 Years: Dec. 27-30, 2019

(Taught in a combination of Dutch and English by a professionally trained, native Dutch teacher.)

During this vacation bootcamp of four, daily workshops, kids ages 7-12 will become explorers who design, build and program robots and tech prototypes to survive in space.

They’ll work in pairs or small teams to complete a series of programming and robotics challenges using tools such as LEGO WeDo and LEGO Mindstorms.

Our bootcamp is ideal for children with no previous exposure to computer science and maker education and those who have previously participated in NewTechKids programs.

The bootcamp will be an ideal environment for kids to invent, experiment, express their creativity and improve their collaboration skills in a fun and safe learning environment.

Workshops will take place everyday from 10:00 – 13:00 on the following dates:

  • December 27, 28, 29 and 30, 2019

The bootcamp will be taught in a combination of English and Dutch by a professional teacher with specialized computer science training.

A minimum of 17 students is required to offer this bootcamp. Registrants will be notified one week prior if the bootcamp is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.

Light snacks (fruit, cookies and drinks) will be served during each workshop.
