Welcome to the world of programming and coding; the cornerstone of computing upon which our modern world revolves. Based in Poblenou and Sant Pere de Ribes, this kids club teaches children what goes on inside a computer, encouraging them to be innovative and preparing them to become the technological pioneers of tomorrow. The club’s founders, Jennie Dalgren and Linus Ekenstam, a primary school teacher and a serial entrepreneur respectively, moved to Barcelona from their native Sweden to pursue their shared passion for innovation and programming. Coding teaches kids how to express themselves in a creative and inquisitive way, and Dalgren and Ekenstam hope to show them that they can not only be consumers, but also creators, when it comes to digital devices. “We want to see more diversity amongst the people building this world. That’s why we focus on the very young, who are hopefully not as influenced by society over what kind of jobs or hobbies are apparently suitable for boys and girls, certain age groups, nationalities or religions,” explained Dalgren. The Kids Hack Club offers weekly classes, and they plan on leading summer camps later this year in additional locations across Barcelona.
