In mid-February, we again invited the children of our employees to another Kids’ Day. On this day, we give the kids starting from the 4th grade the opportunity to get to know our job descriptions and to get an insight in their parents' everyday work life. This year, the event again found huge approval— some of the children even participated for the third time. With an exciting program, we were able to spark kids’ interest for technology and especially for programming.
Divided into two groups, one team taught the programmable LEGO EV3-robot how to independently perform various tasks on a large game board. For example, the robot should align a solar panel. For this, it was necessary to build a suitable construction of Lego bricks, with which the robot can adjust the panel, and then program the robot respectively using a simple language.
Meanwhile, the other technology newcomers got to know the language "Scratch" on the computer, an educational visual programming language for children and adolescents. Highly concentrated, the little newcomers familiarized themselves with the basic concepts of programming while using Scratch for the creation of small mini games such as a brick breaker game. During the game creation creativity had no limits and, of course, the employees that swapped their job with the young visitors gave advice and practical support along the way.
