Stichting NewTechKids has launched Computer Science Live, a new series of teaching collaborations with technology companies aimed at teaching computer science and computational thinking in the context of knowledge and inspiring case studies from the technology industry. We co-create program modules and lessons with technology companies and invite their experts into our classrooms to teach along with our own teachers.
Our teachers are well-versed in computer science and computational thinking at the primary school level. This guarantees that all of Stichting NewTechKids’ teaching collaborations reflect our focus on teaching fundamental computer science concepts and helping students develop 21st century skills.
