With the right equipment, children with disabilities can operate computers.
Now, together with the Technical University in Berlin, a German startup has developed an online course to make coding more accessible for 7-16 year-olds.
Once a week in one-hour video chats, trained coaches explain how code is developed. In small groups, children then learn about Python in a playful way or how to create an app.
Writing functional code promotes creativity, logical thinking and teamwork. It also helps students as they start to navigate the digital world.
Even those with no previous knowledge can quickly celebrate successes, master challenges and share their results with the community.
