Today, ABN AMRO and the Municipality of Amsterdam are joining forces to introduce primary school pupils to programming. As part of the programme Coding for Amsterdam, two hundred primary schools in the Amsterdam region will be offered an introductory class in programming. A follow-up class is available too, as the relevant teachers can opt to receive training and laptops.

Coding for Amsterdam is a StartupAmsterdam programme and a partner of ABN AMRO Foundation. The senior classes of Amsterdam's primary schools will be given the opportunity to learn how to code. This programme is an initiative of alderman Kajsa Ollongren, who is committed to giving digital skills a structural spot in Amsterdam education. Alderman Ollongren: “I believe all children deserve the opportunity to develop these digital skills, so that interaction with technology will come more naturally to them, making them better equipped for their future.”
