Code Your Life
Code Your Life gives 10-14 years old girls and boys the opportunity to not only be recipients of the new media, but to actively help to shape new media and technologies, to develop apps and to program their own animations.
By 2018, a total of 100 schools and other educational institutions have received their free "starter packages". These starter kits contains a Malrobotor kit called "Mirobot", a Windows tablet computer with a user manual and a basic curriculum that introduces children to programming. In addition there is additional support provided by a media educator while the manual is also available for free download.
The programme offers training opportunies for teachers providing them with the support on the way of integration of Code Your Life initiative in classrooms. Free training sessions for teachers are organised in various cities in Germany in order to demonstrate the possibilities for creative coding teaching and learning in a practical way.
