Workshop IMAGINE / ICT2018
December 2018: Imagine
Workshops with Pocket Code, Ozobots, and Microbits. Final idea marathon with students.
Remote Mentoring Sessions
The project continues with units in October + November 2018 at two secondary schools. Our mentors (who are university students) help girls who share the screen of their Pocket Code program. They receive 1:1 mentoring exactly when needed. It is a great project 😀

Workshop & Lunch Talk: For the workshop the participants worked alone or in a small team and code a game app. They learnt something about coding through direct experience, tinkering, collaboration,
