Free Programming Training for Children "Coding Kids Burgas" Is Organized by the Municipality of Burgas

 

The Municipality of Burgas and the Vocational High School of Computer Programming and Innovation are launching a joint educational initiative for children during the upcoming spring vacation. The program "Coding Kids Burgas" aims to provide every child in Burgas aged 6 to 12 years to receive free education in the field of digital technology and programming.

Coding Kids Burgas has the ambition to ignite young people's curiosity about technology, help them learn new skills, and turn them from technology consumers into technology creators.

Classes will be held daily from 1 to 8 April. The locations of the trainings will be in the International Congress Center of the Sea Station and the Vocational School of Computer Programming and Innovation. In the registration form, those interested have the opportunity to mark the most convenient location for them.

The enrollment of the children will be done until 25.03 only by filling in the form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc8bFerZAagLKmL6OPbfWKjPkVeQSzKdbmONGeyDL5joHufPw/viewform?usp=sf_link

In order to ensure maximum efficiency of the trainings, it is planned to form training groups of up to 12 children, whose trainings will be conducted by two high school students and one mentor. The children will be divided into three age groups: 6 to 8 years old, 9 to 10 years old and 11 to 12 years old. After successfully completing the training, all children will receive a certificate of participation.

The trainers in the program will be students from 10th and 11th grade from the Vocational High School of Computer Programming and Innovation. The trainings will be carried out with the help of the Scratch programming environment, which is adapted for children from 6 to 12 years of age. Its content was developed and translated into Bulgarian by EPAM.

Initially, the children will follow instructions in a physical environment, cut and arrange, draw and construct, play games, and only then move on to block programming. Using Scratch will help teenagers learn basic concepts by presenting the basics of programming in a language accessible to them.
