2019 May Vacation Computer Science Bootcamp (7-12 Yrs): April 29-May 3, 2019

(Taught in a combination of Dutch and English.)

Mission: The E-Team to the Rescue – Designing a Cleaner, Safer, More Sustainable World

During this vacation bootcamp of five daily workshops, kids ages 7-12 will join Division E (for Environment) to become intrepid inventors who develop tech prototypes aimed at solving disasters which are actually happening around the world: floods, food shortages, polluted oceans, etc. 

Kids will learn about computer science concepts such as programming, commands, loops, sequence, iteration and if-else logic by designing and programming automated systems and robots using LEGO WeDo, LEGO Mindstorms and good old art supplies.

The program will be taught in a combination of English and Dutch by a professional teacher with specialised computer science and art education training.

Workshops will take place daily from 10:00-13:00 on the following dates:
– April 29 and 30 and May 1, 2 and 3, 2019

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

A minimum of 15 students is required to offer this program. Registrants will be notified one week prior if the program is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.

Light snacks and drinks will be provided and children can also bring healthy food from home.
