Coding 4 all: out-of-school coding camps for girls and low-income peripheral communities empowers girls and peripheral low–income communities with the use of computer programming through out-of-school camps, where the basics of coding are taught in an innovative and informal way.
The project inspires and provides them with a basic knowledge of coding languages, promoting their interest in CS and encouraging them to choose specific university programmes and carriers in the computing fields.
The project enriches the current out-of-school camps offer from Explora and develops pilot coding camps, with the potential to be transferred to other local/regional schools, as well as to other children’s museums, in Italy and in Europe.
Project duration: January-December 2017, with summer and winter coding camps, both at Explora and in selected peripheral schools of Rome.
Project duration: 01/01/2017 – 31/12/2017
Support was provided by the Google K-12 Education Outreach Fund of Tides Foundation
