We offer Coding Camps and Workshops for tourists coming to Oulu or Helsinki. The content of the camp or workshop is always tailored to meet the wishes and needs of the visitors, but what is always in the itinerary is learning of the important 21st century skills combined with fun projects!
No matter what the future brings, we will need skills such as abstraction, problem solving, design thinking and how to find and apply knowledge. By coding we learn all this.
Practicing coding enables us to train vital skills for:
– mastering the digital world
– developing our mindset
– expressing ourselves
