NewTechKids ‘Try It Out’ Workshop for 8-12 yrs: January 16, 2022 (15:00)

(Taught in a combination of Dutch and English.)

Thanks to a donation from IT company Schuberg Philis, NewTechKids is able to offer a few subsidized spots to kids from low-income families with a Stadspas.

Kids are required to wear masks during our classes. 

During this NewTechKids ‘Try It Out’ workshop held at the Amsterdam Public Library on Sunday, January 16 at 15:00, kids ages 8-12 will be introduced to computer science, coding and robotics in a fun and social way.

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.).

During this workshop, they’ll discuss inspiring examples of technology before completing a challenge in pairs and presenting their prototypes.

Our workshop is ideal for children with no previous exposure to design and computer science. Ideal for girls and boys.

The workshop will take place from 15:00 – 16:30 on Sunday, January 16, 2022.

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.

A maximum of 14 students is required to offer this workshop. Registrants will be notified one week prior if the workshop is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.
