The first programming school for teens in Gdansk. The courses will help you learn about the future profession

The first programming school for teens in Gdansk.  The courses will help you learn about the future profession

400 students between the ages of 13 and 18 will participate in the first programming school in Gdańsk. During the two-day training, in addition to the computer lessons, teamwork will be practiced and learning how to deal with emotions. Classes will be conducted as part of a joint venture between ThinkYoung and Boeing.

The program, which will be implemented for the first time in Gdańsk, is intended for all students. The organizers do not hide, however, that students from Ukraine will be especially welcome.

– I am very impressed by the solidarity that united our colleagues from the Polish branch of the company with their colleagues from the Ukrainian team. By hosting the ThinkYoung Coding School at the Boeing office in Gdańsk, we are passing on our support to the younger generation to equip them with the skills to succeed – said Sir Michael Arthur, President of Boeing International, during the opening.

Gain future skills

The Coding Academy has been jointly run since 2016 and has so far benefited over 900 teens, and fifteen editions of the event have been held around the world. In addition to coding skills on blocks, participants will also learn about emotional intelligence and learn how to work together in a group to achieve a common goal.

– When we think about the labor market today, we see that there are many professions that did not exist 10 or 20 years ago. This is why acquiring the skills of the future is so important and I am firmly convinced that this program will help a lot in this regard – said Gdańsk Deputy Mayor Piotr Borawski.

“Nothing boring and difficult”

– We show that “programming” is not a boring and difficult thing. Young people learn how to make websites, how to make games, and see that learning programming is a bit like learning a language. For many of them, this is the first time they have dealt with this topic. They have dreams, they think about the future, and perhaps these workshops will change their attitude and they will consider going in that direction,” said Carol Bronowski, Code Young teacher and trainer.
