Starting from 2017 FacilityLive is pledging to make its initiative Coding4Kids, a private coding session for 4th grade students, an all year round initiative, thus hoping to contribute to making Europe Code Week too to become more than just an annual event. FacilityLive will organize a Coding4Kids event every month in order to give all the 4th grade students of the city of Pavia (500 kids in total) the possibility to learn how to code by attending one dedicated coding session before the end of the scholar year (June 2017). After a first piloting phase FacilityLive is pledging to repeat this initiative every year with the possibility to include also a specific training for teachers.
Coding4Kids is a format developed by the Italian hi-tech startup FacilityLive, with the support of the Municipality of Pavia. It consists in a private coding session for 4th grade students to be held inside the headquarters of FacilityLive. Coding4Kinds aims to promote digital skills and help kids to start approaching the world of technology and coding.
