Coding and robotics after-school programs are increasingly present among extracurricular activities offered by schools and also by academies like Codelearn. In recent years, technology-related activities are becoming more important among the preferences and interests...
In many countries, coding is already a new subject in schools. The opportunity to learn programming in schools makes it easier for everyone to have access to STEM education and helps to reduce social, economic and gender inequalities.
Codelearn’s most exciting programming competition is back. After two years organizing an online competition, this year our popular Karel Challenge will once again have a face-to-face modality that will start on May 2 and end on June 4 with the grand final in Barcelona. However, after the experience of the last two years we didn’t want anyone to miss this coding challenge, so we have decided to create a new online Karel Challenge competition, which will start on June 4 and will be open to everyone. This online competition will have a unique category and the winner will get a Google Pixel 6. Are you ready for this big challenge?
Temperatures are starting to rise, summer is coming and we are ready for the online coding camps. This year we have organized four different courses so that you can learn to code from anywhere: you only need a computer and an Internet connection. There will be coding courses, Minecraft camps, video games programming courses, for younger children and also for teenagers.
Our centers are organizing the third and final thematic week of this academic year, which will be dedicated to the origins of computer science. The word “informatics” (from the French word “informatique”) was coined from the sum of the words “inform” and “automatic”. Thus, we can define it as the science that studies the automatic processing of information or, more specifically, as the set of knowledge, methods, processes and techniques that enable the automatic processing of information (data) through computers.
