DigiVita Code events for EU Code Week
EU Code Week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way. This year the focus is on schools, and teachers are encouraged to give their students a first glimpse into the world of programming and inspire them to do more with it by incorporating hands-on activities into the curriculum.
You can visit the VHTO website to view their full programme.
