In December 2016, Stichting NewTechKids received a Google RISE Award. The Award provided funding which enabled Stichting NewTechKids to develop and launch a series of 21st Century Skills Clubs for kids ages 7-12 focused on computer science education in Amsterdam Southeast, a largely low-income, minority community. Stichting NewTechKids also joins Google’s global network of organisations providing computer science, after-school programs.
Google also provided Stichting NewTechKids with a 2017 Europe Code Week sponsorship to organize a ‘Rising Technologists Road Show’, a series of ‘Intro to Programming’ lessons taught by our team and local teachers to students at primary schools in Amsterdam Southeast.
Stichting NewTechKids’ Computer Science Teacher Training Program, to be held January – March 2018, is made possible by a donation from the 4K 4Charity Fun Run. The Fun Run is organised every year during the IBC Show in Amsterdam by AWS Elemental, a technology company based in Portland, Oregon and will support our mission to bring technology education to a more diverse and inclusive group of students and teachers.
Quby, together with Eneco, collaborated with Stichting NewTechKids to develop a Computer Science Live lesson plan module based on systems thinking and smart energy management. We brainstormed lesson ideas with Quby’s software developers and then developed five lessons which have been taught to several classes of students ages 10-14.
