Introduce students to app design during Code Week

From Thursday, October 21, 2021 6:00 PM
to Thursday, October 21, 2021 7:30 PM

EU Code Week Team

Open online activity


Brussels, BEL

Join us for this workshop during which we will show educators how they can bring Inclusive App design to their classroom, with an activity suited for pupils from 5 - 18 years of age. 

Great apps start with great ideas. You can join Europe Code Week 2021 carrying out this one-hour Inclusive App Design Activity, which will introduce students to the world of coding and app development. In the activity, which you will learn to carry out during this workshop, students will come up with an app idea connected to a topic they care about, then discover how to design with inclusion and accessibility at the centre of their app design. After completing the activity, educators can go further with Apple’s coding resources for educators and students.

The workshop will be conducted in English but the resources are available in 12 languages: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

You can find out more about the Inclusive App design activity, that is part of the EU Code Week Challenges at this link:

Les programmateurs du futur
Mon, Nov 8, 2021 12:00 AM

Dans le cadre d'un projet de réseau, un accompagnement éducatif aura lieu pour 3 écoles (12 élèves de CM2 par école) dans lequel les élèves vont s'initier au codage et à la robotique.

Des robots Lego (Wedo 2, Mindstorms et Legoboost) vont être utilisés pour réaliser des défis inter-écoles.


- découverte et initiation au codage par le biais d'activités débranchées et par l'utilisation de logiciels (ici Scratch)

- construction et programmation de robots pour relever des défis inter-écoles.
