We have three workshops:

  1. Beginner (11-13y)
    They start with the classic Hour of Code Tutorials and love to learn the first steps of programming with the Minecraft Tutorials.
  2. Advanced (13-15y)
    This group starts to create an App with the Android Appinventor and the Windows App Kit, which works into a browser only. They start to learn about class, objects, events and UIs.

3. Pro (13-15y)
In this group we have students, who knows a language like Java, C# or another one. We start to develop a classic application a watch with Visual Studio 2015 with Windows 10 and on Mac with Visual Studio Code. After this session they will have their own watch and it´s possible to change the timezones.

After one hour we have a small break and a second hour for the Workshops. In the second timeslot the students have the chance to test the Acer Mixed Reality device and the HoloLens at a Mixed Reality lab into a special room at this school.
