During five Tuesdays this spring, ten Secondary school pupils (ages 10 to 12) from the Vista school (Vistaskolan) in Huddinge have been learning programming in one of the computer rooms at campus Flemingsberg. At the last session, on the 24th of June, the pupils showed each other what they have been creating.

“It’s been really fun, both educational and a bit challenging. I would like to continue programming and develop a cool game”, says one of the children, Uma Sinadinovic Sallander in grade 4 at Vistaskolan.

“It’s often simple games that the children can create in the programming language Scratch. They are very creative and often come up with new ideas of how to develop the basic tasks we have given them. They have also tried programming in JavaScript”, says Agata Lucja Wojcik. She’s in her second year of the Degree Programme in Computer Engineering and is one of three KTH students who runs the sessions together with a student from Södertörns högskola and a PhD student from KTH.
