Children present their work at an international scientific conference

The fifth European Seminar on Computing (ESCO 2016) was a great success! It was attended by more than 250 participants from 22 countries. Notably from Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador, the U.S., South Africa, Japan, China, India, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and of course from many European countries. The new section on computing education attracted a lot of interest. The photo below shows Tonda and Vitek – two 11-year old students from the elementary school in Chrast, Czech Republic, who performed a live demonstrations of their 3D modeling skills with NCLab. Let’s begin with those and some other photos will follow!
