Project of the Year - Innovation (2021)

Coding for my Future!

This year's additional prize for an outstanding project in the field of innovation goes to the association "Das andere SchulZimmer gemeinnützige UG".

"Das andere SchulZimmer" prepares young people aged around 15 to 27 who have dropped out of the school system and are in difficult life situations for an out-of-school lower secondary school or intermediate secondary school qualification and subsequent entry into a profession. Many students have shown particular interest in the field of "media and programming," which offers good career opportunities. The "Coding for my Future!" project addresses this need. Parallel to the lessons of "Das andere SchulZimmer", the students acquire basic programming skills. The project takes place twice a week for 2 to 3 hours each in presence or (if required) online. In small groups and individually guided by IT experts, they work their way into the IT world step by step.
