European Schoolnet, the STEM Alliance, and Microsoft are delighted to invite you to “Hacking Future Skills: Computer Science Education” virtual event to be held on June 25, at 3:00PM CEST.

The goal of the event is to explore the state of the art for Computing Education in Europe and discover different approaches, reforms, and initiatives aiming to equip the future generation with the skills they need. The event will consist of two sessions:

  • 15:00 – 16:45: The first session focuses on policy making, and experts and decision makes will share their experience in tackling the rapid changes in education and the important role that computing curriculum can play. A panel discussion will be held with European and national government representatives.
  • 17:00 – 18:30: The second session is instead dedicated to practitioners and teachers, who will share their success stories of sparking the interest and curiosity for computer science in children with various tools, such as Minecraft for Education and Micro:bit. We will also have a hands-on demo and practical exercise led by Microsoft Product Teams.
