The program of the Startup Week Düsseldorf 2021 mainly consists of events with a limited number of participants.
This means you need a separate ticket for each event.
Compile your own program by selecting your tickets on the respective event page and putting them into the shopping cart. When you have made your selection, you can easily order them as Print@Home tickets or mobile-phone tickets.
You can participate in hybrid and digital events for which you will also need a ticket in most cases. Shortly before the event starts, you will receive the link to the digital event by e-mail.
However, for some events there is a public livestream. Then you will find the link to the livestream on the respective event page at the end of the event description.
If you read “mit Code” for a ticket, you first need to apply for a ticket. You will find details on how to do this on the respective event page under the event description. If your application is successful, you will receive a ticket code which you can use on the event page to get your ticket.
Use this symbol to mark events you want to add to your favorites. With the help of the favorites you can create your own program.
The Codingschule was founded in 2016 in Düsseldorf as an initiative aimed at teaching children and young people how to program which thus imparts digital skills to them. Since then, the Codingschule has become a non-profit organization which offers programming and technology courses for various target groups.
With Codingschule junior, for example, they offer an open course program for kids aged 10 and older as well as organize educational programs in cooperation with partners and project days in schools.
After all, “every child should have easy access to digital education”, says the Codingschule. That’s also why it offers scholarships for its courses, so that children from socioeconomically weak families can take part.
At Codingschule.de adults can learn how to program via online training courses and take part in coding projects. Learning takes place in small groups and under the guidance of a teacher. Codingschule.de also awards scholarships on request.
To help schools more effectively in form of further education and IT support, the Codingschule and its partner InVision have launched the tech and teach initiative in 2021. Teachers who have little experience using IT acquire basic skills working with PCs, tablets and other technology in courses with low-threshold training.
The donations generated by the Startup Week will be used to provide targeted support for schools in socioeconomically weak districts in Düsseldorf.
