Our Programs

MOOC: Programming with Processing

> Our MOOC at imoox.at

Opened in 2017, our Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) "Programming with Processing" helps all aspiring students make their way into informatics. While it was originally intended to phase first-year students in, we widened the MOOC’s scope to speficially reach girls in school and young women who consider a Bachelor’s programme in informatics. Therefore, we put an emphasis on a gender-sensitive design of the course. Our MOOC is available at iMooX.at. With a simple and free registration interested persons–above all pupils, lecturers, students of all fields of study as well the general public–can access the MOOC for free.

Abenteuer Informatik (Permanent Exhibition)

Abenteuer Informatik

Opened in 2019, our permanent exhibition introduces kids to the amazing adventure that is Informatics. They experience first-hand the fundamental principles of our discipline through entertaining puzzles, magical tricks, and group activities.

Programming for Female First-Year Students

> Course: Programming for Female First-Year Students

Since not all first-year students bring the same prerequisites from their schools, we offer a preparatory course: "Programming for Female First-Year Students". This course is one of our women's advocacy activities. It offers a week-long intensive introduction to Processing and Java, usually in mid-September. Participants are subsequently introduced to the basics of Java. This interactive and extensive course switches between lectures and practical exercises.
