Winter 2017 Computer Science Bootcamp: 7-9 years

Old MacDonald had a ROBOFARM!

During this bootcamp of eleven (11) weekly workshops, kids ages 7-9 will learn about computer science and how to use the thinking and problem-solving models behind it.

Kids will design and develop technology solutions to build and manage a farm with animals. How can robots and AI help farmers automate processes and keep the farm running efficiently?

The bootcamp will integrate a mix of pen and paper activities, arts and crafts, games, and designing and building with 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 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 Thursdays from 16:15 – 17:45 on the following dates:
– January 12, 19, 26
– February 2, 9, 16
