Theme: Robots Playing Traditional Games
During this NewTechKids summer vacation bootcamp of 5 daily workshops held at the Amsterdam Public Library, kids ages 8-12 will design and code robots to play a series of games before developing their own robot game with strategy, rules and a point system.
Kids will dive into building and visual programming 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.).
During each class, they’ll discuss inspiring examples of technology before completing challenges in pairs and presenting their prototypes.
Children who successfully complete the bootcamp will receive a NewTechKids diploma.
Our camp is ideal for children with no previous exposure to design and computer science and those who have previously participated in NewTechKids programs. Girls are welcome!
Classes will take place everyday from 10:00 – 14:00 on the following dates:
– August 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19, 2022
This bilingual camp will be taught by a native Dutch-speaking professional teacher with specialised training in computer science. The curriculum and workshops are based on NewTechKids’ pedagogy which focuses on concept-context learning and the use of tangible learning tools.
A morning drink and snack will be provided. Children are required to bring their own lunches, including utensils and cups.
Kids will also enjoy outdoor play during the lunch break.
A minimum of 16 students is required to offer this bootcamp. Registrants will be notified 3 days prior if the camp is cancelled and a full refund will be provided.
