WKÖ CodingDay 2020 participation

On 23 October Catrobat will be part of the 2020 CodingDay by Wirtschaftskammer Österreich (WKÖ). Together with different partners we want to help to get more teenagers driven towards MINT-Studies. An awesome event regarding our mission, to get future generations ready for our digital world.

Our constructionism based approach and our apps like PocketCode are best suited to get our next generation in touch with coding in a playful and easy way. The best thing about it is that the teenagers can use their self coded games and animations on their own smartphones. This makes it also possible that they can code on after the event on their own devices.

The slogan “Hack’ dich in deine Zukunft” is on point and hopefully drives more interest for IT-based tuition.
