Europe Code Week 2016

Europe Code Week celebrates all things digital and code, and takes place between 15th – 23rd October 2016.

It’s a common fact that we’re training our children for jobs that haven’t even been invented yet. We’re told that many of these jobs will be within the software industry; so many parents are pushing their children to learn how to code.

The idea is to show everyone how ideas can be brought to life with code and encourage people to learn together.

Calling all teachers!

Why get involved?

In 2015, 46 countries took part in this fun week. It will help boost your students’ digital and programming skills, as well as inspire them to take on new challenges that involve coding.

Want to plan your own coding event for your students?
