SCRATCH - Code Week 2017

  • The European Code Week (Nov.10 to 22, 2017), the Hour of Code (worldwide during 4.-10.2017) and other coding events aim to bring coding and computer science to everybody, especially to students of all ages, with fun and in a challenging and motivating way. All initiatives offer coding activities to students e.g. for Scratch.
