What do you like most about Code Week?

The thing I like most about Code Week is the fact that it can be seen as an impulse, an extra motivation, to create new activities. Using these activities I can do what I like most: to connect schools, children, teachers and graduates.

What are the top three reasons why everyone / kids should learn how to code?

For me the most important aspects of coding are that it allows you to change the world around you, understand new contexts and discover new possibilities. This is of main importance for children.

Which project/activity related to Code Week are you most proud of, and why?

I often use peer-learning during projects and regular classes. Students become tutors and teach coding to classmates, younger students and parents. This has been very successful with 9-year-olds teaching how to program BeeBots.
