Winter 2017 Computer Science Bootcamp (10 Weeks): 8-11 Years

To infinity and beyond!

During this bootcamp of eleven (10) weekly workshops, kids ages 8-11 will learn about computer science and how to use the thinking and problem-solving models behind it.

How? By becoming time travellers who use computer science and robotics to solve technology challenges from the past, present and future, ranging from medieval catapults,  horse-driven carts and telegraph machines to self-driving cars.

The bootcamp will begin with an introduction to visual programming and LEGO Mindstorms. Computer science concepts covered will include automation, programming, algorithms, loops, if-­else statements, technological systems, sequence, event handling, variables, control statements, Data: Boolean, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, and design process.

The bootcamp is ideal for children with no previous exposure to computer science and those who have previously participated in NewTechKids programs. Workshops will take place on Tuesdays from 16:15 – 17:45 on the following dates:
– January 17, 24, 31
– February 7, 14, 28
– March 7, 14, 21, 28

NewTechKids promotes bilingual education and our workshops will be taught in a combination of Dutch and English.

A minimum of 15 students is required to offer this bootcamp. Registrants will be notified one week prior if the bootcamp is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.
