On 06 May 2014, The Encoding Zone was opened at the Copernicus Science Centre by Samsung, our strategic partner. The idea that programming is like the third language of human beings (after the mother tongue and the second language, used for communication) was presented during the opening ceremony by Michał Boni – the Minister of Administration and Digitalization in 2011-2013, Hadrian Bauman – the President of Samsung Electronics Polska, and Przemysław Wielowiejski – the deputy director of the Copernicus Science Centre.
Scratch is an object-oriented programming language which makes programming possible even for primary school children. Find out for yourself.
It is enough to sit at a computer for 15 minutes in order to move a little ghost, change its costume or even build a simple script. Samsung animators can introduce you into the secrets of the programme. The effect of your work will be seen on a digital board.
Why is it worth becoming familiar with the basics of programming? Because it shapes the skills which are necessary in today’s world. Programming skills help to think logically, to reach solutions independently, to draw conclusions, as well as to develop teamwork and patience.
Admission fee is included in the ticket to the permanent exhibitions of the Copernicus Science Centre.
Samsung, the strategic partner of the Copernicus Science Centre, is in charge of implementing the educational programme “The Masters of Encoding” - this initiative received favourable reviews both among teachers and the representatives of local and state authorities.
