In this episode, I am talking to Deborah Carter about New Tech Kids – a technology academy in Amsterdam, the Netherlands which teaches primary school aged kids about technological innovation. Deborah is the Founder and Managing Director of NewTechKids.
In 2014, she made the leap into entrepreneurship to launch NewTechKids. With a son enrolled in Dutch primary school, she looked around for a place where he and other children could fall in love with technological innovation and computer science and learn how to be innovators and inventors. When she couldn’t find it, she decided to create it.
NewTechKids is a technology academy in Amsterdam, the Netherlands which teaches primary school aged kids about technological innovation: computer science, programming, design and critical thinking about the implication of technology. NewTechKids teaches during school, after school and during school vacations. They even teach overseas in places like the Middle East and Switzerland.
NewTechKids has launched PreparationTech, a video interview series in which Deborah interviews technologists, people whose work relies on technology, and students studying technology.
