1) Program Video Greetings and Animal Patterns in JavaScript!

JavaScript is the programming language that makes web pages come alive. In this workshop, you will learn the basics of JavaScript programming. You will create a video greeting card that you can share with your friends. Then you will learn essential programming skills by creating animal patterns. You do not need to have any prior programming skills. When you finish this workshop, you will understand how to do useful work with a real-world programming language.

This lab is for kids of age 8-14 years old.

Instructor: Cay Horstmann (Germany)


2) Escape Game with Karla

A small robot, Karla, went into a huge building investigating a strange signal. Her navigation system, powered by advanced AI, has been broken and now she is lost. She needs help from outside to get out. Will you help her out? She will need precise instructions to escape!

In this introductory lab, we will learn some basic concepts of programming, such as

decomposition of bigger tasks into smaller, more manageable tasks.

This lab is for kids of age 8-14 years old, with no or little experience with programming .

Instructor: Jan Lahoda (Czech Republic)
