As world and life evolve, programming is becoming an essential tool for all fields of science and even life itself. This is an increasingly encompassing fact in engineering fields, with computing and automation truly augmenting tools and processes. GRIDS Code17 will provide a series of workshops where programming skills will take the center stage. From mobile apps to the internet of things, from motion physics to numerical simulation and optimization, several topics will gravitate around the focus on software development and programming. Applications will feed awareness, in an interactive and dynamic fashion. This is thought out for a broad audience, with little or no programming background, where you’ll only need the will to learn and an engineering knack.

Through dot cards will be shown to the class how to convert a number from decimal system to a number in the binary system. Then, groups of students will be formed and they write secret messages between them, using the binary system.
Start: Oct 8, 2019
- Presents de software. - Presents the Arduino and some components. - Implement examples with S4A ( - Realize some small projects.

Awareness raising with local school teachers to become available to actively participate with as many classes as possible in CodeWeek2019 activity. The aim is to give them as much useful information as possible so that they can integrate, even if once a week in their classes something related to computational thinking, preferably having to do with programming, even not teaching subjects directly linked to the technological teaching. The use of technology within the classroom is imperative, and pedagogical resources will have to tend in that direction. It will certainly make teaching more enjoyable for teachers and students, while at the same time endowing students with other skills. At the limit use programming (Scratch or other visual) to get students to increase their logic and problem-solving skills here, 2x per month. For this purpose we will give a series of lectures, we will have an associated profile on facebook ( and we will have a monthly column in a local newspaper about programming and teaching.
Start: Jun 10, 2019
During the week of Europe Code Week, in addition to our regular classes, we will make available 1 hour a day to give workshops to raise awareness about the use of programming as a tool for cognitive and logical growth from an early age. We will make a communication campaign during the month of September in several schools of the county in order to make the project known to the maximum of possible parents.
