Hands on Hack - Coding Jam @ the Future Classroom Lab

20TH OF OCTOBER 2016 - 9:30 AM TO 5:30 PM

The European Coding Initiative, along with the Future Classroom Lab ambassadors and Learning Labs' network, is organizing an international hackathon on 20th of October, where teams from schools and learning labs across Europe and beyond will have the chance to build and share their projects.

The organisers will lead the work from the Future Classroom Lab in Brussels, and any team joining up the initiative is most welcome to organise its own branch event, participate to the competition and connect online.

The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness on the importance of digital skills for a digital citizenship and experiment together how engaging and meaningful is to create digital content and tools, and to become makers rather than just consumers of technology.

The hackathon will revolve around three major themes, and best projects will be awarded under the following categories:


N.B. The hackathon is open to everyone (educators, students, practitioners, parents, policy makers…) and no previous knowledge of computer programming is required. All coding languages (including visual one as Scratch, Kodu, Alice, etc.) are absolutely fine.

For more information, find the full guidelines here.

As soon as you build your team, please register it here.

You can find the form to use on the 20th of October to submit your creation here.

Before the Hackathon get some inspiration from our Toolkit we prepared for you!
