NewTechKids is pleased to open up registration for its Summer 2021 bootcamps.
We’re again partnering with the Amsterdam Public Library to offer kids in Amsterdam and the rest of the Netherlands the chance to learn computer science, a subject which is not taught in most primary and high schools in the Netherlands, and develop 21st century skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, teamwork and collaboration, communication and creativity.
We will be offering six, week-long bootcamps during which kids will discuss technology examples and discuss the implications and ethics of technology before working on team-based challenges to develop robots and tech prototypes.
The bootcamps will be taught in a combination of English and Dutch by a native Dutch-speaking teacher with specialised training in computer science. The curriculum and lesson are based on NewTechKids’ pedagogy which focuses on concept-context learning and the use of tangible learning tools.

Week #2: July 19 – 23
Week #3: July 26 – 30
Week #4: August 2 – 6
