Code event

We, husband and I, are always complaining about the alpha-oriented education given in school. Alpha is fine, but for making a substantiated choice for their future, kids should get some beta input too. So we grab the opportunities that come along to show our girls that there's more. Yesterday our youngest went to a workshop in coding at the University of Technology in Eindhoven, organised by Digivita. She took a friend and they came back very enthusiastic. "It was fun and not difficult at all". They got to meet robot Nao, see Oculus rift and worked with Mindstorms. But the girls' favourite activity was building a piano with play dough, mandarins, a banana and the Makey makey-kit. I'll have to tell Sinterklaas that N would appreciate a kit like that.
