Every year, more and more girls take over IT sphere. There are many reasons why girls ignore the IT sector. The main ones are the negative influence of society and stereotypes that, from childhood, prevent girls from forming a healthy interest in technical professions. The purpose of the Coding Week is to attract namely girls-teenagers (10-14 years old) to programming and robotics, to show them the world of coding and information technologies, to demonstrate how using IT can help to fulfill their most daring creative ideas. During the training they will acquire not only basic technical design skills, but also new knowledge of robotics, as well as find out what computer thinking is. Using the visual programming language Scratch and the Dot robot from Wonder Workshop, we will teach children the basics of programming. During the robotics classes, schoolgirls will learn the basics of designing and programming with LEGO Education WeDo 2.0. They will develop their own robotic device and apply this knowledge to set the engineered model in motion. Through the study of a wide range of technologies, digital themes and programming, we will help trainers to overcome fears and gender stereotypes, provide an additional incentive for studying and choosing the best profession in the future. We will promote IT technology in training; we will demonstrate on practice that today's coding needs girls who can maximize their potential. They will see the connection between coding and the creation of robots; will receive programming skills and will develop critical thinking and teamwork skills in groups. Trainings will be conducted by experienced IT technology teachers.
Start: Oct 8, 2019
Code Week @ Showcase School will be organized on 5-18 October 2019 in Zalishchyky State Gimnasia, Ukraine. We would like to expand our students' understanding of how technology works, develop skills and capabilities in order to explore new ideas and innovate. The students will be encouraged to take part in a collaborative programming challenge using an online, real-time environment. A lot of activities are planned for the Code Week: children will take part in coding challenges related to the real-world by designing new buildings, road networks and economic solutions for the future. They will see the link between coding and making a culture park, a virtual museum and other venues. They will play Blocky games and eSafety Snakes, use Scratch and do the 3D printing. Also our students will enjoy learning to code with Minecraft (Education Edition).

Programming-related professions are our future, so we have to teach students to program and encourage them to gain new knowledge in this branch. This event will help students to do this. The purpose of the event is to promote the distribution of information about coding and the creation of various applications and games using the code. The aim of this activity is to raise awareness of students about coding and computational thinking and to get them acquainted with the basic concepts of coding. The use of tinkering and educational robotics as a teaching and learning tool within a school curriculum encourages students to be guided in discovery, in problem posing and in problem solving. Coding, tinkering, robotics and microelectronics can help to engage students in developing useful skills and competencies to deal with many types of problems and to develop critical and computational thinking. Robotics activities are designed to empower students' engagement with STEM as a medium for computational thinking, problem solving, creativity, communication, collaboration, and programming skills. During this event, children will get acquainted with the Python programming language, will learn how to program robots, and will get acquainted with the Internet of Things. The events to be held within Code Week: 1. Master class "Creating 3D models". Talking with kids about what 3D-modeling and programming is. Teaching children the main functions of the TinkerCad. Creation of the 3D model with children. Demonstration of work program; code analysis with children. Creation with the kids code that builds the 3D model. 2. Making robotics and tinkering in the classroom - 3. The purpose of this event is to introduce 12-year-old students to coding. This will be achieved using CodyRoby offline games, so as to engage students in computer thinking. CodyRoby - 4. Coding in art. We study the concept of fractals. Creating a fractal artistic composition is not in drawing, but in programming. In software, images are automatically generated by mathematical calculations. 5. Tutorials on the platform and on coding for educators. Courses passing. 6. Programming in games. Students play games that teach them how to program -,, Checkio,, Codewars, ScratchHarvey Mudd. These free resources will help you learn the basics of programming by playing games or even creating them. 7. Introduction to Augmented reality (AR). Conducting seminars. 8. Scratch Workshop to help students learn basic programming concepts - variables, conditions, loops, functions. Students will understand what multimedia content means - animation, text, image and sound - and learn to make their own games on a more advanced level. 9. Seminar for girls. Skype meeting with a female programmer. Tips for Girls on a Successful Career in IT. 10. Closing ceremony; receiving certificates; acquaintance with professions that are related to programming.
