Early 2022 Sunday Bootcamp at 13:00: 8-12 Years (5 workshops)

(Bilingual camp taught in a combination of Dutch and English.)

Kids are required to wear masks during our classes. 

Theme: Books and Films Come to Life with Robots

During this NewTechKids bootcamp of five, weekly classes held on Sundays at 13:00 at the Amsterdam Public Library, kids ages 8-12 will design and code robots based on well-known kids books and films: ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, ‘Star Wars’, ‘Harry Potter’, etc.

Kids will dive into designing, building and visual programming using LEGO robotics kits and art supplies. They’ll learn about design and computer science concepts (coding, commands,sequence, loops, if-else logic, etc.) and work in pairs to design their own prototypes. 

The workshop 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.

Classes will take place on Sunday afternoons from 13:00 – 14:30 on the following dates:

– January 30
– February 6, 13, 20 (no class on February 27 during the Voorjaarsvakantie)
– March 6

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

A minimum of 12 students is required to offer this camp. Registrants will be notified 3 days prior if the camp is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.

Location: Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam, Oosterdokskade 143, Junior Lab in basement (5-minute walk from Centraal Station)
