Digitization is proceeding continuously. It is therefore essential to prepare children and young people for the ever-changing world of tomorrow in order to offer them the very best future prospects.
Unfortunately, this important topic is still far too little discussed in the school/educational system. There is a lack of concrete offers which take into account the progressive digitization of our society. Computer science should already play a role at primary school age and should also receive more attention at secondary schools. Our goal is to establish coding as an integral part of the curriculum.
With our engagement at schools and the cooperation with headmasters and teachers, we want to set an example, help and motivate. Girls and boys alike should be inspired by this exciting topic even before typical role models are formed. We want to reduce teachers' fear and show them ways how everyone really understands computer science and can also teach it.
We would like to expand the impact of our engagement through further sustainable offers. To this purpose we are looking for partners and supporters who share our objectives and principles. Together we can give even more kids and teens the chance to experience digitization and programming in a playful way already at school.
Do you as a school representative or teacher also see the need to impart knowledge about coding and digitization to your students? Or do you as a company have an interest in promoting these topics in your region?
We look forward to the exchange with you – even in times of Corona!

Our video of the project week “Coding for Future” at the Thomas-von-Quentel School gives you a good insight into our activities. Headmistress Andrea Lauer also expresses her personal point of view and underlines the importance of such educational offers.

Anyone can code! We focus on a playful and creative mediation of the learning contents in order to inspire children and young people with exciting topics. We also break down barriers among teachers through our methodology.
Girls and boys should be equally enthusiastic about programming. This is why we are already involved in primary schools, where gender-specific roles have not yet been developed significantly.
Our offerings on the topics of digitization and coding are explicitly aimed at all children and young people, regardless of their social background and financial means.
Mistakes are part of life. They allow us to learn from them. The encouragement of an open error management culture is therefore a central component of our services. Children and young people should learn to communicate their mistakes openly so that they can benefit from each other.
We convey the use of technology as an aid to solve problems. Against this background, the students explore the potentials of digitization and apply their knowledge in an interdisciplinary way. This supports the learning process.
The mutual exchange of ideas and knowledge is particularly important in order to create projects together. We are open to creative ideas and unusual approaches instead of nipping them in the bud.
We foster individual (project) ideas. This way kids and teenagers can grow and develop themselves best. With this in mind, our offers are kept very flexible and can be individually adapted to the specific circumstances of each project.
Kids and teens need to be prepared for the digital working world of tomorrow. To achieve this, it is essential to integrate an overall concept – from elementary school to the Abitur – into school lessons.
