Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers

Europe Code Week 2018

Science on Stage invited STEM teachers across Europe to organise a coding event or activity within the Europe Code Week.

Digital and coding events of all kinds during the Europe Code Week 2018 were offered funding with up to € 150.00.

About 40 coding activities were supported in Albania, Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Turkey, and Ukraine:

  • At the Irish school Scoil Chaitríona Junior, Renmore in Galway young students aged between 4 and 8 years old had a coding workshop each day using Scratch, Bee Bots, LEGO WeDO 2.0, Wonder Dots, iPads and programmes from The Hour of Code (Angry birds, Kodable, Moana and Candy Quest). Learn more on our blog.

  • At the Galilei Institute Avenza-Carrara in Italy the students learned how to use Arduino modules to create light games. They worked with the software MBLOCK and some components, such as led and wires of different colours. With MBLOCK they also wrote some simple programs to move Mbot robots and to switch their LED lights on. Learn more on our blog.

  • At the Ludwig-Thoma-Gymnasium in Prien am Chiemsee, Germany, the students of the elective course physics constructed a roboter controlled by smartphone using RaspberryPi. 

Further reports and pictures of coding projects funded within the Europe Code Week 2018 will be published here in time as well as on our social media channels.

The Code Week activity grant by Science on Stage is kindly supported by MAECENATA foundation and SAP SE.
