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.
