Remember when on April 28th we hosted an international meet-up for students and industry professionals "Girls Make IT happen"? During this wonderful event Tele2 SSC established 100 scholarships for children around Latvia to enroll in free coding lessons. And right before the start of school year we decided to host additional free of charge workshop for children around Riga in cooperation with LearnIT.
The workshop brought together coding, technology and hands-on activities to develop such 21st century skills as digital literacy, problem solving and collaboration. During the class participants discovered algorithms all around them, wrote their first programs in kids-friendly coding platform and tried out LEGO robots.
Information about free of charge coding lessons in our premises was announced in local press and during August 27th, 42 children of 9-12 yrs old got acquainted with the world of IT.
