We have been approached by the local administration (eZurich, Wirtschaftsförderung Zürich) and Startup@UZH to give workshops to local high school classes. Google offered to host us and we already have candidate classes from Kantonsschule RG and Enge.
Please do not sign up for this event if you're not coaching.
We already have a pre-allocated class of kids.
Additional workshops open for everybody will follow at a later point in time.
This is a pilot project to see how we can hook best into K-12 education and runs in parallel to our longer term, ongoing efforts in Berlin. We're currently looking into our Python for beginners material, Scratch curricula, eToys/Makey Makey, Processing, Blender, and different hackathon formats.
The students are going to be in Sekundarstufe II, ie. aged 16+. Lunch is generously sponsored by Google; the event features an office tour.
Disclaimer: Education for kids is different from normal workshops. While we highly encourage everyone to join in on the fun — and it isgoing to be great fun — that kind of teaching is not for everyone.
