We are happy to announce that our programming project coding.kids from Rostock is now entering a new round. Migrant families still have an increased need for support and education, especially in the natural sciences. We want to meet the challenges associated with this with our new edition of coding.kids 2.0, which we are once again implementing with the support of the Deutsche Telekom Foundation as part of the „Ich kann was!” initiative:
The coding.kids 2.0 project, which is aimed at growing adolescents aged 11 to 15, is dedicated to scientific exploration. With the help of an Arduino physics kit, the children and young people experiment with forces, movement, magnetism, and conductivity. They make their own hypotheses like real scientists, check their assumptions, and record the data. With the help of a specially developed science app, they do this completely digitally. In addition to the manifold effects on the children’s cognitive abilities, the project is used to sensitize the parents of the participants to promising topics such as digitalization, but also to possible dangers.
We are also pleased to announce that we have found a cooperation partner for the first round of the project, in whose premises and for whose target group we will organize the weekly course: FJM e.V. from Güstrow. We are looking forward to the cooperation!
