SQ Academy. Kids coding lab: creative coding space for youths.

From gamer to maker. You're between 8 and 16? Become an actor of your passion in programming with Silversquare and We Are Coders

SQ Academy: An exclusive range of training courses given by experts and enthusiasts in their fields of expertise in the exceptional setting of Silversquare.

Kids Coding Lab: A module in 12 independent and varied workshops focusing on learning by doing and project implementation for 8 to 11 year olds and 12 to 15 year olds (bridging possible). First workshop: Wednesday 14 September. Have you been searching for an off-the-beaten-track activity for your children? Look no further: get your diaries ready!

A light, practical and accessible training cycle for a modest contribution thanks to the sponsorships Silversquare and www.wearecoders.org

Each workshop offers a different activity according to the age group and does not require any prerequisites (the workshops are independent of each other). To guarantee optimal training and complete availability of the trainers, the groups are deliberately limited to 10 children. The workshops are given in French.

All the environments/software have been chosen so that young people can download them for free at home. None of them is paid for or intrusive in the privacy of personal information. Accessibility and security are therefore total.

Silversquare and We Are Coders have taken a vow of inclusion and openness. If you would like to register your child but the small fee we offer is still an obstacle, please contact Cedric Meuris cedric@silversquare.eu or 0475/81 64 52. We will find a solution together.

Parents: Take advantage of our working environment and spend a free afternoon in Silversquare Bailli while your children attend the workshops.

Registration for the first 4 sessions is open (please contact us for the rest of the programme: cedric@silversquare.eu).
