The Hacker School is a German organisation aiming to teach children and youth programming and software developing using a more interactive project-based approach.
The organisation is a NGO based in Hamburg, with courses all over Germany.
My participation have been focused around workshops using the micro:bit platform, which aims to teach programming concepts and logic through a drag and drop GUI.
Despite its simplicity, the micro:bit allows for an impressive creativity and freedom.
