Teaching kids computational thinking is key to avoid a digital fracture with the next generation when IT will be at the center of every action and only a portion of the population will have access to that knowledge. To achieve this, CodeNPlay takes a bottom-up approach building a curriculum to be taught throughout 6 years of primary school - 1 hour a week. Currently, the course is delivered as an extra-curricular activity - given inside schools' premises. With the aim to train local teachers to teach it themselves.
CodeNPlay needs help on the different aspects (by order of importance):
- contact with primary schools' principals (in Brussels)
- teachers willing to contribute (with IT or educational knowledge, no need for both!)
- help on cursus building
