Girls Coding Week 2021

Girls Coding Week 2021

Summer is here and why not also learn something new or improve your IT skills? Try our Girls Coding Week!

Girls Coding Week takes place as part of “Science Holidays,” an initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research.

In this one-week course, participants will learn how to create their own app using our “Luna & Cat” (Pocket Code*), why learning how to code is important in the process, and that, combined with a creative design approach, it can be very exciting and easy.

Not only do the participating girls have the opportunity to program their own, they also get to choose which area of coding they want to learn something new in. In addition to app and game design, they can also get a closer look at a part of robotics by programming their own embroidery patterns. Overall, the participants get a diverse insight into different areas of programming.
