The Story Code Project

Story Code is an action research project (2023-2026) of the Erasmus+ KA220-SCH Program (Cooperation, Internationalization and New Educational Methods).

The Story Code Project is aimed at students and teachers of kindergarten and primary school to introduce new digital languages, computational thinking, and storytelling-based programming skills within the STEAM paradigm (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics).

Seven institutions from four European countries are involved in the project:

  1. Scuola Ladina di Fassa (Italy - IT)
  2. Computer Learning (Italy - IT)
  3. STRIPES Onlus (Italy - IT)
  4. Universidad Europea de Madrid (Spain - SP)
  5. FundaciĆ³n Educativa Francisco Coll (Spain - SP)
  6. Learning Hub Friesland (Netherlands - NL)
  7. Kauno Simono Daukanto progimnazija (Lithuania - LT)
