Only a month after the launch of the project Ultra:bit a third of all schools, in total 703, in Denmark has registered to participate. The focus of Ultra:bit is to form a platform for pupils to learn to code among other things where a minicomputer is delivered to every child, totally 65 000. “It is a pleasure to see, how fast and engaging schools over the whole country embraced the offer of ultra:bit. It gives evidence of that it is really great motivation out there to become activated in the project”, says Morten Skov Hansen from Danish Radio (DR) that is one of the organisations that is running the project, the other is the Danish Industrial Fund, with the mission to secure a well-skilled and adapted future work-force in Denmark.
