Until today, we have given coding training to over 228,000 children in 81 provinces. We constantly update our educational content. Besides Scratch training, we continue to improve our children's digital competencies with digital training on various subjects. Also, we have recently updated our project's website with our new educational content. We provide extensive information on everything, from coding to cyberbullying, via this website. We believe our updated website will become a fundamental resource for teachers, students, and anyone seeking to get an education. We will continue our activities, aiming to raise a generation that does not only consume but also produces."

We feel right happy and proud of constantly expanding the scope of our Coding Tomorrow project, which we implemented with the collaboration of the Vodafone Turkey Foundation and touches the lives of thousands of children.

With our project, we develop processes that guide our country's digital transformation, thereby contributing to the prepare our children for the digital world of the future. Thanks to our website implemented within our project, We will popularize our training such as 'Scratch', 'Tinkercad', 'Artificial Intelligence', and '21st-Century Skills' and new content such as 'Designing Games with Unity', 'Mobile Application Development with Appinventor', and 'Cyberbullying'.
