What is a remote bootcamp?

The remote bootcamp is a four-day program where we’ll meet in online classrooms to learn about basic programming concepts and online game development. Our teachers are programmers themselves so you know you’ll learn from the best. You can join our remote bootcamps from home or anywhere else remote. All you need is a device* so you can join our teachers in the online classrooms.

At the remote bootcamp you’ll learn:

With Bomberbot, any teacher can teach digital skills to their Grade 6 – 8 students in a fun and easy way – even without any prior knowledge or experience.
Learn how to become the best digital skills teacher through a training by one of our facilitators and rely on our ready-to-use teaching materials created by educational specialists.

Media Literacy

Students learn about the modern media landscape and how (digital) media affect our society in many ways, discussing topics such as fake news, cyberbullying and the impact of social media. Students gain important insights into their own digital footprint (i.e. what data is collected about them online). They will learn how algorithms personalize our online experience – from the advertisements we see on YouTube to our search results on Google – and what impact this has on society.

Computer Programming

Aimed to help students understand the basics of how computers work and how we can communicate with them. The lesssons will teach students to write simple computer programs using a visual programming language. Next to that students will know basic programming concepts such as For loops, If Statements and Until Loops and how to apply these when programming and customizing their own online games.

Programming

Learn programming concepts, get to know how games are designed and developed and develop your own games!

Soft skills

Learn from peers and collaborate to create fun games. You’ll meet friends from anywhere!
