Call for School Coaches

From: Robert L.
Sent on: Thursday, July 18, 2013 5:04 PM

OpenTechSchool Zurich has the unique possibility to give workshops for Zurich schools!

We have been approached by the local administration (eZurich, Wirtschaftsförderung Zürich) and business (Startup@UZH, CTI Invest) to give classes to students (Sekundarstufe II, ie. age range 15-19 if I understand the Swiss education system correctly.)  We'll host the workshop at the Googleplex on Thursday, 12th of September.

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 (itlabsberlin, in collaboration with the Technologiestiftung Berlin.)  We're currently looking into our Python for beginners material, Scratch curricula, eToys/Makey Makey, Processing, Blender, and different hackathon formats.  (I do not yet have info on the language of the class but I guess they're most comfortable with German, sorry.  Will reconfirm.)

If you want to coach and have time at that date, please sign up now.  If you want to join in on the discussion, participate in our Doodle for a coordination meetup.  For all additional questions please inquire directly with me.
