Università della Svizzera italiana hosted the Devoxx4Kids 2022 day, organised by Ated ICT Ticino, on Saturday, 8 October 2022. About sixty kids aged 11 to 15 were welcomed at the East Campus Lugano for a day in the name of creativity tied to the world of innovation, programming and robotics.
The Devoxx4kids event offered kids the chance to experience and approach the world of technology in a fun way. Parents also participated in some of the activities.
Several speakers enlivened the day ranging from cyber security, with the Cyber Survival Game, to programming with Minecraft, building and programming a robot with lego Mindstorm, to a workshop dedicated to WeTube, RSI's open space dedicated to young creative people in Southern Switzerland.
"We are happy that the benchmark association of computer scientists in the canton, ated ICT Ticino, chose USI as the place to carry out its activities to promote informatics and technology among our kids," said Mauro Prevostini, programme manager of the Faculty of Informatics at USI. "It feels good to see the enthusiastic response from the many boys and girls who wish to pursue their curiosity in the technology field."
