Code Week 2018





Europe Code Week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way. 

The eSkills Malta Foundation is once again coordinating the EU Code Week initiatives. This year Code Week will be held between the 6th and 21st October 2018.  As most of you are aware last year Malta ranked first in the number of coding events held per capita.  Obviously, this would not have been achieved without your invaluable help and participation. 

Once again, this year we are looking forward for your participation in the EU Codeweek by organizing events.  Ideally, we target events for any age and on a variety of topics.  As in previous years, participation would be free and there are no prerequisites.  This year all participating countries h ave been challenged to involve 50% of schools in Europe to take part in EU Code Week by 2020.  

 

 Coding is for everyone. Try something new and discover the fun of coding by joining an event.
   


MaltaPi is a community event for people to come together to learn about digital making with Raspberry Pi
We have several workshops for anyone under 14 who wishes to take part in the AstroPi MissionZero challenge. Learn how to code in Python and write a program that will run on the International Space Station!!
