2019 New Year’s Bootcamp for 7-12 years: 3 daily workshops (AFTERNOON)

(Taught in a combination of Dutch and English.)

During this afternoon computer science bootcamp of three (3) workshops just after New Year’s 2019, kids ages 7-12 will become members of Division Q, a secret group of technologists responsible for tracking down a missing treasure. They’ll complete their mission by diving into visual programming and robotics using LEGO WeDo, LEGO Mindstorms and arts supplies.

During each class, they’ll discuss inspring examples of technology before learning about computer science theory. They’ll then complete class challenges which involve designing, building and programming technology prototypes in pairs or small teams.

This bootcamp is ideal for children with no previous exposure to computer science and those who have previously participated in a NewTechKids programs. The curriculum and lessons are based on NewTechKids’ pedagogy which focuses on concept-context learning and the use of tangible objects.
