Europe Code Week is the perfect time to give coding a try. Join Suzanne Lustenhouwer and Matt Hanlon for a hands on session for educators, exploring the power of the Swift Playgrounds app to take learners from their first line of code to their first app. 

In this session, you will be guided through an activity which you can use in your classroom, using the Celebrating You Educator Guide on the Apple Education Community. The activity features a starter project to get learners coding their first apps. In the activity, learners will personalise a sample app that celebrates a place or tradition that’s important to them. 

The 90 minutes session that will be delivered in English on Tuesday 18 October from 16:00 - 17:30 GMT (17:00 - 18:30 CET). Participants need an iPad or Mac to do the hands-on part of the session.
