Since it started a year ago at the TAKEOFF Incubator of the University of Malta, Headstart Technology has rolled out EasyPeasyCoding courses to seven schools in Malta and two in Paris, trained hundreds of students, and networked with thousands more at events promoting the importance of coding for children of all ages.
'It has been an exciting year for all of us here and being selected as one of the finalists is extremely gratifying for the whole team. We want to thank everyone who helped us get to this point,' said Klaus Conrad, Founder and Director of Headstart Technology Limited. 'We believe that coding is the single most empowering skill a child, teacher or parent can learn today, and we want to offer the very best learning experience for each and every student.'
The two finalists of IdeasFromMalta will now present at the Informal Meeting of the Competitiveness Ministers of the EU on 6 April, and the winner will be representing Malta at the Ideas From Europe finals in Estonia in November.
