Coding bootcamps and Codelearn, two different ways to learn programming

Coding bootcamps are intensive courses that last a few weeks and get their students ready to enter the working world and the programming field by acquiring specific knowledge. Each bootcamp has a different duration, some of them are part time and some others are full time studies, there are some courses that are designed to learn programming from scratch and some others require a certain...

The Karel Challenge is one of Codelearn's coding competitions

The Karel Challenge is a game / e-sport that tests participants’ speed, strategy and correctness when programming. Its main goal is to spread the importance of programming and computational thinking among children and young people and to do so in a fun and exciting way. Regarding Codelearn students, only those who have finished Chapter 2 of Karel’s adventure can participate, but you can also sign...

Ada Lovelace was the first computer programmer in history

The gender gap in STEM related fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) persists all over the world and there are some countries where it is really significant. On February 11 we celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a day that was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 to fight for an equal access to STEM careers and to promote...

Drones are part of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), which means that they have no pilot and can be controlled either remotely or autonomously

Throughout the school year, Codelearn spends different weeks working specific technologies. The first special week of this year has been about drones. Last week all Codelearn centres studied the operation of drones, the parts of a drone and the different types of drones that exist nowadays, as well as their different applications. Students were also taught about the current legislation for both recreational and professional...

STEAM education helps developing computational thinking

Everyday there are more and more countries committed to introducing children to science and technology through a new practical and playful learning model that fosters the development of the so-called STEAM skills. While we already talked about STEM fields in the 90s, this idea has evolved over the last years and has added the creative, open and innovative component of Arts, so little by little...

Computational thinking helps us finding the best solution to any kind of problem

Computational thinking is a mental process that leads us to find optimal, efficient, creative and open solutions for problems we have to face not only in technological areas, but also in any other sphere of our daily life. In order to communicate with computers and be able to understand them, computer scientists must learn how to think as a machine does: through decomposition in different...

A kid willing to learn how to code

Everyday we can notice some small details in our kids showing us that they use a different logic comparing to ours when we were their same age. Nowadays the first instinct of a kid who doesn’t go to school yet is to touch all screens instead of using a small keyboard, as it is what they have seen from the first moment and they think...
