On the 6th and 20th of October 2019, the African Impulse e.V. joined other institutions throughout Europe to organize Meet and Code events within the framework of the European code week.
The EU code week aims at making kids and young people fit for the digital future. The African impulse e.V. always joins this action as it aligns with our purpose. This year, we chose the cities of Duisburg and Cologne to organize the events.
We look forward to organizing these events yearly and more often. This is the third year in a row that the African Impulse is participating in the European Code week Meet and Code event. We would like to thank Haus des Stftens and the project sponsors for the opportunity to be able to give these young people a chance to be introduced with tools which can change their lives positively in the future.Read more
Meet and Code - African Impulse to host 2019 in Duisburg and Cologne
We are happy to inform the public that African Impulse e.V. was selected this year again to participate in the European code week (05. -20. Oct. 2019) with the goal of introducing young people early into the world of programming.
Last year we had three sessions in Duisburg and Mülheim in which we chose to introduce the kids into programming with Scratch, programming apps and the Calliope mini . With the high resonance, we had, we are pleased to take up the challenge again. This time we want young people to continue to learn practical programming (App programming and Calliope mini) in an interactive and interesting way. We have also laid emphasis on the participation of girls. The events shall hold in Duisburg and Cologne, Germany.

This is a great chance for parents to introduce their kids into the world of programming
Our program this year shall take place in Duisburg and Cologne with the following practical sessions:
