On 5th July 2019 two of our sexondary school trainers Leonidas Leonida and Katerina Sheyttani trained 30 students aged from 10-15 years. The 2-hour training included the Makey Makey, Scratch and Unplugged activities of the CODINC Toolkit.
The training was part of the 1st Microsoft Innovation Center Cyprus STEM Entrepreneurship Summer School which took place in Nicosia, Cyprus!
Following the success of the secondary school students training in Cyprus which took during February and March 2019, the primary school pupils were introduced to coding.
During the Easter holiday from 2 to 5 May 2019, 62 pupils participated at the 15-hour workshops and received training from the secondary school e-facilitators under the supervision of the project trainers.
The students of the Ethnomartyras Kyprianos secondary school in Nicosia, Cyprus have successfully completed the first part of their training. They have received 15 hours of training from their trainers Mr. Alexandros Kofteros and Ms. Matina Marathefti. In April the students will meet with the primary school pupils to show them how to code in a fun way!
The piloting in Cyprus started on Sunday 10 February 2019 at the Ethnomartyras Kyprianos Lyceum. The first stage of the pilots will train young students in coding, programming and stem education practices in a fun, playful, and inclusive way. The young students will then go on to teach their even younger peers how to code! The methodology is based on 👨🚀STEM 👨🚀education, computational thinking and problem solving. The first stage of the pilot includes 15 hours of student education in both programming and knowledge transfer to primary school students.
