If you are wondering what to expect at TechSpark Camps – Check Out what other students say about TechSpark…
How was your TechSpark?
I had a lot of fun participating in the programming courses at TechSpark Academy! There we learned how to program games using Python and surprisingly, you need the “programming language” every day! If you think about it, you’ll find it everywhere. Since then, I’ve been thinking about how apps are programed. I learned a lot and had lots of fun!
The Cyber Security Weekend at Google was pretty remarkable. We could see what it’s like to work and learn at Google. There we also saw and learned about the Google Streetview cars and could tour the offices. We worked in teams and helped each other to solve different cyber problems. I made new friends and together we could experience new discoveries.
Thank you Jolie!
Wie war Ihr TechSpark?
Ich habe sehr viel Spaß gehabt, als ich an den Programmierkursen bei TechSpark Academy teilnahm! Dort lernten wir, wie man mit Python, Spiele programmieren kann und überraschenderweise, braucht man die “Programmiersprache” täglich! Nur wenn man ein bisschen nachdenkt, findet man es überall. Seitdem überlege ich mir immer wie Apps programmiert wurden. Ich lernte sehr viel und hatte grossen Spass dabei!
Das Cyber Security Weekend bei Google war ziemlich erstaunlich. Wir konnten sehen, wie es ist, bei Google zu arbeiten und zu lernen. Dort sahen und lernten wir auch über die Google Streetview Autos und wir durften sogar die Büros anschauen. Wir arbeiteten in Teams und halfen einander, verschiedene Cyber Probleme zu lösen. Ich fand neue Kollegen und Kolleginnen und zusammen konnten wir neue Erfahrungen erleben.
Thank you Jolie!
