Free and educational apps
for you & me
The nonprofit project Catrobat aspires to develop solutions which inspire teenagers and adults to learn coding, get creative and be prepared for the digital world of our future. Simple logical processes, creative solutions and easily understandable connections are essential in the world of tomorrow.
We believe that free, age-based and motivating software which can be used by teenagers or in education, is essential in order to prepare the next generations. Catrobat is doing this by bypassing traditional school pedagogy, instead using a constructionist approach focusing on game app development and fun. We believe in poverty alleviation through coding education for teens – girls in particular, refugees, and teens in developing countries, directly on their personal smartphones. This is especially important in less privileged regions, where teenagers have their own smartphones but do not have access to PCs, laptops, or tablets.
The Catrobat project is proud and happy to collaborate with some of the best known universities in the world.
Together we are trying to shape future generations and prepare them for the digital tomorrow.
