Meet and Code is an initiative that aims to introduce children and young people between the ages of 8 and 24 to the world of technology and coding. Meet and Code events are designed to show young people how technology works, how IT affects our daily lives and demonstrating how much fun coding can be especially in bringing ideas to life.
By exploring a broad range of technology and digital topics and creative coding, children and young people will be encouraged to develop the digital skills they need in today’s world.
Selected organisations will receive €500 to fund an event during the EU Code Week from October 6 to 21, 2018. There is no limit on number of attendees, providing the event is free of charge. Events could range, for example, from hackathons, coding workshops, lectures, film events, competitions, coding nights, robotics classes or other formats.
Non-profit organisations must apply online and are welcome to submit several different event ideas. Every assessed event idea that qualifies as eligible receives seed money of €500.
