Coding Goûter is a multilingual event (EN/FR/DE/LB) where kids between the ages of 6 and 12 years old, accompanied by an adult, will get to know the world of computer programming in a fun way. A hands-on approach to programming tools, robots, logic games, algorithm puzzles, etc.
Why are we organising this event?
To give our children the chance to get acquainted with digital skills which are becoming more and more indispensable, just like reading, writing and knowing how to count: mastering of computers and programming tools.
But our mentors will not be giving magisterial coding lessons. The main idea behind the Coding Goûter is rather that kids take their first coding steps together with their parents, under the helpful supervision of our Code Club coaches. And if you’ve been to a coding workshop before, then don’t worry, experienced participants will also have their share of fun!
At the end of the day, families will have the tools, knowledge and inspiration to continue coding at home!
What should you bring?
Because in ‘Coding Goûter’, there is ‘Goûter’, which translates into ‘Light Meal’, the delicious part of the concept is the potluck: Every family should bring a little something (a cake, cookies, sweets, fruit…) so that all participants can share a friendly moment in between the workshops. We will provide the drinks.
We will provide computers and all the necessary material for the workshops. There is no need to bring your own laptop or tablet.
The workshops are organized in such a way that the children spend a fun time with their parents. Parents are requested to stay on site for the duration of the Coding Goûter. We are not prepared to welcome children without accompanying adults, or groups with many children and few caretakers.
