Malta placed first in the European Code Week titled Inspiring Digital Skills, held between the 5th and the 20th of October 2019. The initiative’s objective is to help transform lives by making digital skills and innovation come to life for citizens across Europe and beyond. During the mentioned week, schools, non-profits, coding clubs, and other organisations were invited to host activities centred around coding and computational thinking.

For the third consecutive year, Malta placed first, with the most events per capita on the scoreboard amongst more than 70 participating countries. Malta has once again surpassed the 50% school participation target set by the EU Commission with more than 80% of local schools participating in this initiative. Moreover, this year Malta has more than doubled the activities held.

Maltese schools have been busy organising coding activities. As evidenced in the EU Code Week website, local teachers of all levels and subjects have been organising various activities with their students. Plugged and unplugged activities making use of a wide range of resources, ranging from simple pen and paper to robotic kits, celebrate creativity, collaboration and learning through coding activities for people of all ages.

This event was supported by The Directorate for Digital Literacy and Transversal Skills, Malta eSkills Foundation, MCAST, Digital Literacy within SFCE, Foundation for ICT Accessibility, Esplora Interactive Science Centre, Malta Libraries , as well as some private entities.
