LXer: On Europe's first Code Week with Irish Ambassador Julie Cullen


Published at LXer:

The first Europe Code Week was held two months ago at schools and CoderDojos in 26 countries around EuropeóIreland and Croatia being the most active. The event was launched to help increase the knowledge shared with school-age children about coding, computer science, and technology by The Young Advisors (a group of young people dedicated to advancing a digital society working closely with the Vice President of the European Commission, Neelie Kroes).During the events, kids from schools all over Europe used Scratch, Arduino boards, and other open source software and hardware to build thier projects (including robots)!  Each country that took part in Europe Code Week appointed an Ambassador to lead their event. I reached out to Irelandís Julie Cullen, a teacher at St. Oliverís College, Drogheda, Co. Louth, to get her take on the event. In this interview, Julie shares just how excited the kids were to work with code and computers, what open source software they hacked on, and what projects got underway. She also tells us whatís in store for this yearís #codeEU 2014.
