Creative with code

10.000 children discover their talents for science

In 2017, Dwengo vzw and SheGoesICT launched the WeGoSTEM project. With WeGoSTEM, we annually give thousands of pupils from the 5th and 6th grade the chance to discover their talent for science and technology in a creative way. Regardless of their field of study, we make them enthusiastic about STEM by having them build and program a drawing robot themselves. In addition, students are helped not only by their own teacher, but also by passionate volunteers from the business world.

The first edition was a great success and reached 5,000 children. In 2018 we are expanding to no less than 10,000 students (about 8,500 in Belgium and about 1,500 abroad).

Societal impact

Inclusive approach

Dwengo vzw and SheGoesICT have chosen for an inclusive approach. Target group are boys & girls in Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia. We want to be active in major cities as well as in small villages. Priority is for schools with a lot of unprivileged children. Since 2018 we also target unprivileged children outside of Belgium.

European CodeWeek

WeGoSTEM is an initiative in the European CodeWeek from 8 to 26 October 2018. Dwengo and SheGoesICT want to reach in Belgium and abroad in total 10.000 children. This helps for the European goal for the CodeWeek of more than 1 million!
