As a EU Codeweek Leading Teacher for Portugal, and in my free time as a writer on 3D Printing, Tech and education for Bi2Geek, a portuguese portal about science and technology, I'll dedicate a series of articles about coding and robotics in education. The goal is raising awareness of the general public, going beyond educational contexts. Tag for the articles: https://bit2geek.com/tag/eu-codeweek/ Articles already pubished: https://bit2geek.com/2018/11/05/da-robotica-ao-pensamento-computacional-educacao-para-o-seculo-xxi-299183904/ - coding, robotics and computational thinking; https://bit2geek.com/2019/05/02/cinco-projetos-de-robotica-educativa-criados-em-portugal-003958825/ - portuguese opensource and DIY educational robotics projects.

My First Website - web design for the planet
Sat, Oct 16, 2021 9:30 AM
In the event "My First Website - web design for the planet", the objective is to show young kids that they too can be web creators from a very early age, developing their sense of creativity and logic as digital creators. We'll be using the Wix platform, both drag & drop and simple html instructions, to show students how to go from a "blank page", to thinking a new website, to actually building and publishing it. The target group for this event is 8-12 years old, in the Lisbon area, and the projects will be based on the topic of environment protection and recycling, each student having as their output a published landing page. The groups will be divided in classes of max 8 students, live online, and each event has a duration of 3 hours. All the kids participating in the event are new to digital creation and coding. This event is done in partnership with Crack the Code, with the purpose of bringing computational thinking to all kids.
