Public Libraries 2030

Invite-only in-person activity

European Parliament, Ixelles - Elsene, Belgium

Generation Code: Born at the Library is an interactive exhibition showcasing the top innovative digital exhibits from public libraries across the EU. The exhibition takes place every year at the European Parliament during EU Code Week. Sponsored by MEP Library Lovers, the exhibition explores how future technologies are interacting with libraries across Europe. Unbeknown to many, Europe’s 65,000 public libraries are a uniquely accessible space for users (both children and adults) to improve their digital skills. In the EU, over 2,3 million people a year attend a digital literacy course in their library, learning anything from basic digital skills to coding. It is a time for celebrating the amazing work that public libraries do every day in filling the digital gap of our communities. Join and explore the exciting world of coding, robotics, 3D printing, virtual reality and much more with fun activities that simulate the daily work of public libraries in introducing people to new technologies!

WeGoSTEM - Flanders

Thu, Oct 1, 2020 12:00 AM

Dwengo vzw/asbl wants to empower teachers so they can discover with their pupils from the 5th and 6th grade their talent for science and technology. We challenge the children to build and program a creative art robot that can draw independently. This way they learn a lot of STEM skills, from technology to computational thinking. For a lot of teachers, building robots in the classroom might be new. Therefore we bundled all our supporting didactic material in a MOOC (massive open online course) and we link every participating school to an experienced WeGoSTEM volunteer. With the online help of their buddy, teachers will be able to bring the workshop in their classroom.

Let's code and dance with EV3

Mon, Nov 9, 2020 8:30 AM

Students work individually or in pairs to program their EV3 mindstorm Lego Robot to dance. They may create a dance for one or for two robots. Beginners can use mainly the movement blocks and some facial expressions and sounds while more advanced students can include some sensors as well. After students create their dance, they find suitable music for it. Although the task is based on EV3 mindstorm programming, it develops students' creativity and gives a lot of options for differentiation.
