Last month, we announced our support of Europe Code Week 2017, an initiative from the European Commission to encourage programming by showing educators, families and young people how to bring ideas to life with code, demystifying these skills and bringing motivated people together to learn. We provided sponsorships to 60 organizations in 33 countries that take creative, interactive and inspiring approaches to get students excited about computer science. And we’re excited that in total, 56,000 students had the chance to gain more exposure to CS as part of these efforts. Here’s a look at a few of the organizations we supported, and the events they held this month:
We’re delighted to have helped these 56,000 students gain more coding experiences in just two weeks, and to collaborate with the European Commission on this successful initiative. See Code Week’s events page to find activities still taking place, and find resources for France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K. For all other countries please visit edu.google.com/cs.
