ITforSHE Programming workshop for kids, Poland
On August 20-24 at the Kosakowskie Cultural Centre, ITforSHE presented free classes teaching programming in cooperation with the Polish-American Freedom Foundation to children aged 8 years and older. The project aims to integrate a group of young IT students, thereby stimulating the children's imagination, helping them discover the cyber world and to show that programming is for everyone. It also builds confidence while the students are having a fun experience.
The goal of the ITforSHE program is to help talented women studying IT with entering the job market. It includes: Europeâ€™s biggest themed camp for young women in IT â€“ Women in Tech Camp, a mentoring program at the best technology companies and a volunteering campaign in small towns. encouraging children to learn programming.
ITforSHE sends active young women studying IT to small towns in summer, to teach programming and tech knowledge at schools. Its goal is to increase interest in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) area among children, to promote women in the role of technology experts and to activate their social potential. We see the result of this program in this workshop.
During the workshop the children learned programming using Building Lego Mindstorms, Be Creo and Dash-Dot. What is more, they can try to use 3D printer and design their own projects. As you can see from the video all of the children had a wonderful time.
