Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, STEM, are vital to the future of our children. The parents and students in our educational systems need to understand and embrace the technology that affects them every day of their lives. Devoxx4Kids is on a global mission to complement the classical schooling system by offering workshops to kids in a fun way. and teaching them computing concepts using Scratch, Greenfoot, Minecraft, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, NAO, Tynker. We will share a path that can be followed by adults to keep kids in their vicinity engaged and build, instead of just play, games. You will learn best practices to organize similar workshops in your local setting and hear tips on opening a local chapter.
This talk will be appreciated by anybody who has kids, nephews, nieces, and in general kids around them.
