about us:

What is the Hacker School?
The Hacker School is a project of the not-profit organisation "i3 e.V.": We want to inspire young people to learn programming, to help them discover and develop talents, that might otherwise remain undetected. And with our project "Hacker School PLUS" we help refugees with technical backgrounds integrate into the German employment market and society.

What does the Hacker School want?
We want to show children and young people between the ages of 11 and 18 just how exciting it can be to create things with programming code; how fun it can be and how pround you can be of yourself when you create a littel program, app or website within a few hours. And we want to be contribute a little bit to a world in which we do not just raise users but also creators.

What else do you need to know?
Professionell developers lead our classes as "inspirers" by passing on some of their knowledge and experience. The top priorities of the classes are having fun and being active on practical projects. Prior experience or good marks in maths or physics are not necessary.

In the Hacker School PLUS project the "inspirers" receive a refugee as class partner, who had a computer science education in his or her native country. By preparing and leading a class together, a career network is created and it is possible to assess skill levels as peers. Ideally this results in trainee positions or direct employment at the company of the the "inspirer."
