The Devoxx4Kids France coordination team, Audrey and Claude, were very busy during the the past year traveling France (and Switzerland) to make events all over the French speaking part of Europe. In their hometown Paris however, this was the first event they organised and we are very happy to be part of the party.
For us, this was the first D4K event with kids between 5 and 8 years old and kids between 8 to 10 years. Both groups had a half-day event with Makey Makey‘s (and 20kg of bananas), the Robot Turtles board game, WeDo‘s and Scratch. The group of 10 to 14 years followed the usual Scratch, Greenfoot, Arduino, Mindstorm and NAO workshop program.
During the happening, the students of E Artsup Nantes did a video recording and interviews with some kids. You can see the resulting video hereunder.
To conclude this little report, let’s have a look to some pictures:
