If you’re a Codelearn student, the 2022 Christmas Contest is a great opportunity to show off all your creativity and all those things you’ve learned since you started learning to code. You have three ways to participate: by making a drawing with Logo, by making a game with Scratch or by editing a Christmas video.
More and more countries are establishing STEM as one of the key skills that must be worked on within the primary and secondary education curricula. The aim of incorporating STEM in the school from the initial stages is mainly to provide the youngers with tools and practical knowledge that are aligned with today’s society and the reality they will have to face in the future on both a professional and a personal level.
It’s already cold outside and we have everything ready for the next online coding camps, which will take place during the Christmas holidays. This year we are offering two online courses: 3D Video Games with Unity (Level 1), for teenagers aged 12 and over, and Video Game Programming with Scratch, which has been created for students aged 9 to 14.
The need to do calculations throughout history: from the first calculators to the birth of computing
The origins of computing can be found in a recurring need that people had in different contexts: the need to do calculations as precisely as possible. Calculations are present in our daily life and are necessary for many things: commerce, accounting for private companies, collecting taxes, statistics in the research field, drawing buildings plans, etc. The world would not function in the same way without mathematics and humans have always been looking for new ways to optimize calculation processes to respond to this need.
The season for pumpkins and ghosts has arrived. As every year, the arrival of autumn means that at Codelearn we are once again organizing the Halloween Contest and our online platform will be transformed into a spooky place where scary characters and stories will be the protagonists for a few days. From October 21 to 28, students will be able to access a special section of the platform where they will be able to show us all their creativity and ─who knows─ maybe even manage to scare us.
