It can be said that we’re training children for jobs that haven’t even been invented yet.
We’re told that many of these jobs will be within the software industry, and now, some parents are encouraging their children to learn how to code.
The aim of Europe Code Week is to show everyone how ideas can be brought to life with code and encourage people to learn together.
Why get involved?
In 2016, over 968,537 people took part in this fun week, from 50 countries altogether! Taking part 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?
You can find out more about how you and your students can get involved by checking out the Code Week website, where you’ll also find some great lesson plans and guides that have been prepared to help you plan and organise your own awesome coding event.
