In a digitalized world, programming is just as important as math or grammar exercises. Yet it is still virtually absent from school curricula. The 56th High School in Leipzig therefore took the initiative and started looking for potential partners who would be willing to support a workshop for students as part of a project week. The students found what they were looking for with the software manufacturer Easy Software and Coding Giants, an innovative educational institution whose mission is to introduce young people to the world of programming.
In the workshop, the basics of programming were taught in a playful way. “A great addition to the daily school routine. With the project week, we open up a whole new world for the children. At the same time, we create a direct interaction with companies that are headquartered here in Leipzig,” says Nicole Ehrhardt, teacher for mathematics, biology, and computer science.
In addition to its involvement in the Hacker School and the Coding Giants, Easy Software will continue to focus more on the training and continuous education of young professionals.
