Coding kids share their digital skills with MEPs
14th October 2015
SPECIAL REPORT / Dozens of children from around the continent came to the European Parliament on 30 September to help MEPs brush up their digital skills.
For the third time, Irish MEP Sean Kelly (European People’s Party) invited the young coders to the annual event in Parliament.
Rallied together by the organisation Coder Dojo, the children taught MEPs how to code, build a basic website and use other digital programmes. More than 40 children between the ages of 7 and 17 traveled to Brussels from Ireland, Northern Ireland, Italy, Belgium, Romania, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK for the coding session.
Thirteen MEPs stopped by to learn from the visitors, some of whom have already been coding for several years.
