Students attending the computing workshop at FER     


The popularization of science program “ŠUZA – from school to science and the academic community” is the new official popularization of science program of the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER). The Program is intended for primary and secondary education students and their teachers. Through visits to schools, educational workshops for teachers and events at the Faculty their interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields is encouraged.

FER’s partners in this Program are the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.) and the student association eSTUDENT. The program is developed in cooperation and with the support of the Education and Teacher Training Agency (AZOO) and the Agency for Vocational Education and Training and Adult Education (ASOO).

On December 15th, 2013 an interactive course “The Hour of Code” will be held at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing in Zagreb in classrooms A101 and A102 from 3pm to 5pm. The course is a part of a global "Computer Science Education Week", a worldwide project started as a collaboration between Mark Zuckerberg and an author of a popular mobile phone application called Angry Birds. It is also organized as a part of the Faculty’s' program of science popularization called "ŠUZA", together in a cooperation with the student organization eSTUDENT.


To attend the course, all attendants have to report their arrival by sending an e-mail to suza@fer.hr.

The courses are specialized for children of various ages and knowledge of coding, so everyone can complete one of many optional tasks. At the course the attendants will personally have an opportunity to try theirs skills in coding, or to learn some new skills and expand the knowledge of coding. With some simple concepts the attendants will make a simple animated story by working on coding languages like Python or Java. They will also have an opportunity to make a Christmas card, imaginary chat friend, puzzle or a 3D and iPhone game. The course will be under a supervision of experienced coders from the Faculty that will answer all the questions and lead kids through the course.
