iDEAlab and workshop “From children to engineers”

iDEAlab in cooperation with Dexter’s IT Laboratory from Novi Sad held a workshop for parents and children about programming and electronics.
 
Goran Đonović presented games that are about programming or that kind of mindset, but doesn’t seem like it. Children were playing games like "My friend robot" and the point was to get stuck or even do something wrong in order to realize how robots work. They only understand very specific commands and those who give them must be precise.
 
Children saw how to make simple games using programming tools such as Scratch, App Inventor, CodeMonkey, Tynker, Lightbot etc.
 
The idea is to make several free workshops for children in iDEAlab. During the workshops, the children will theoretically learn what to do, practice through the games in order to learn the principles of programming and then they will propose their own ideas what applications would they like to develop.
