Stichting NewTechKids is dedicated to conducting research to improve how primary school students learn computer science and how their teachers learn to teach it. We conduct independent research and partner with universities, technology companies and organisations focused on computer science education in schools. Our research focuses on topics such as how to improve teacher training and engage girls in computer science.
Teaching Rising Technologists in Amsterdam Southeast
Stichting NewTechKids has published a new report which outlines our experience teaching primary school students in Amsterdam Southeast, a largely low income, minority community. The report is based on the observations of our teachers during two, 10-week ‘Introduction to Computer Science’ programs we taught to children ages 7-10 from January to April 2017.
