The DIS-CODE (Disconnected, discouraged, disenabled? Let's code!) project intends to deliver an innovative training system based on gamification and interactive tools.

The project aims to help students (12-18 years old) at risk of dropping out to acquire basic knowledge of computer programming and to promote an active and conscious usage of IT tools as a way for acquiring and embedding digital and numerical literacy.

The project is coordinated by the Fondazione Politecnico di Milano, together with the Politecnico di Milano. It also involves six partners from five countries (Italy, Belgium, Cyprus, Portugal and Czech Republic): European Digital Learning Network, European Schoolnet, Cyprus Mathematical Society, Universidade Portucalense Infante D. Henrique, Cooperativa de Ensino Superior Crl and Jednota skolskych Informatiku, covering a wide region from Eastern to Southern and Western Europe.
