Spreker_Deborah_CarterwebChildren’s museums are uniquely positioned to bring technology, computer science and programming, and the higher order thinking skills associated with them, to life by adopting a crossover approach: applying technology concepts to art, design and culture.

During her talk, Deborah will explore how programming, systems thinking and design are perfect concepts to explore as part of children’s learning experiences in museums.

Deborah recently 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 technology and computer science and learn how to be innovators and inventors. When she couldn’t find it, she decided to launch an after-school technology education academy with a co-founder.
