Starting in 2017, FacilityLive pledged to make its FacilityLive Coding4Kids, a private coding session for 4th grade students,an all year round initiative in the hope of making the Europe Code Week more than just an annual event.
FacilityLive will organise a Coding4Kids event every month in order to give all the 4th grade students of the city of Pavia (500 kids every year) the chance to learn how to code by attending a dedicated coding session. In 2017 and 2018 FacilityLive will train 1,000 students in Pavia.
FacilityLive pledges to repeat this initiative every school year, including a specific training for teachers.
Moreover, to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Europe Code Week (October 7th-22nd, 2017), FacilityLive has launched the FacilityLive Coding4SmallValley, a new initiative that extends the FacilityLive Coding4Kids experience to all actors of the city of Pavia, by giving teachers, parents, future entrepreneurs and policy makers the possibility to attend a tailored one shot private coding session during the Europe Code Week 2017.
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.
