Refugee Code Week

 

Changemakers Lab brings Refugee Code Week Train-the-trainers events
to Greece

TTTs are organized throughout the year in the run up to October events. A team of master coding instructors will travel to Greece (Athens & Lesvos Island) to empower participants with the tools and skills they need to become coding instructors themselves. Once trained, they can start teaching code to young people from one or several of the 3 age groups (8-11, 12-17, 18-24)


TTTs about Scratch (1&2) and Web Programming will take place in Mytilene, Lesvos (University of the Aegean) and in Athens (University of Piraeus) on 26-27 June 2017
