Each training path is characterized by a common structure, through the teaching of 4 main subjects: coding, programming, APP development and gaming. Each of these subjects is then carried out on two different levels of complexity: first base then advanced.
The new courses for 2022 are inspired by the idea of ’swimming in the digital ocean’ and to provide an EU-recommended framework of competences. The courses will offer activities capable of developing areas of digital skill, soft skill he was born in digital wellbeing. The courses, delivered by GirlsTech and taught by professionals, will cover some of the most current topics. We will talk about video game programming but also about app development and much more.
