‘Try It Out’ workshop (7-9 Yrs.): March 19, 2024 at OBA Roelof Hartplein

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

A limited number of subsidized spots are available for kids from low-income families with a Stadspas.

During this NewTechKids ‘Try It Out’ workshop held at the Amsterdam Public Library’s Roelof Hartplein branch in Amsterdam Zuid, kids ages 7-9 will be introduced to tech invention and learn how to design, build and code robots and tech prototypes.

Kids will dive into designing, building and coding using LEGO Mindstorms and art supplies. They’ll learn about design concepts (resources, requirements, testing, iteration, best practices) and computer science concepts (coding, algorithms, commands, loops, sequence, iteration, if-else logic, etc.). 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.

The workshop will take place on Tuesday, March 19, 2024 from 16:30 – 18:00.

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 lesson is based on NewTechKids’ pedagogy which focuses on concept-context learning and the use of tangible learning tools.

A minimum of 16 students is required to offer this workshop. Registrants will be notified 3 days prior if the workshop is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.
