Welcome.TU.code: Computer Science-Workshops for young refugees

www.informatik.tuwien.ac.at/welcomeTUcode
In July and August 2015 a team of students and professors of the faculty of informatics (among them the head of our group, Prof. Werthner) initiated the project Welcome.TU.code. The aim of the project was to organise computer science workshops for unattended underage refugees at the TU Wien. More than 80 refugees in the age between 14 and 18 years registered for the courses and made their first steps in programming simple applications and games.

Below you can see photos of the farewell party at the end of the workshops.
