From December 27th to 30th, 2020, 13 members of Teckids e.V. took part in the virtual "Remote Chaos Experience" (rC3) as a replacement for the cancelled Chaos Communication Congress. Despite minor technical difficulties, it was seen as a sucessful and rewarding event by our participants.
Together with more than 20 other organisations, Teckids e.V. signed a joint statement for the use of free software in schools in Baden-Württemberg.
Our biggest event, the FrogLabs, has been and split into two this year. Our first alternative programme took place from the 22nd to the 24th of July. During this time, the participants were able to build solar cars, create their own game, produce a radio play or learn a lot about OpenStreetMap in four different workshops.
From the 19. to 21. June we held a workday on the youth tent pitch, making it the first workday since April that is not taking place online.
At this year's Thomas-Krenn-Award the Teckids e. V. took 2nd place, winning a hardware voucher of 2000€ as a prize.
The virtual Open Education (Half-)Day (OED) took place on April 25, 2020. At the OED, people interested in Free Software and Open Educational Resources can meet and exchange ideas.
During the schoolfree time, the game programming team offered an online workshop where the young people learned how to program their own game with Python with the help of our tutors.
Due to the cancellation of events and the long absence from school, we are planning to carry out an online programming project in which children and teenagers will have the opportunity to program games together with Python and Arcade, online with our tutors for a bit more than one week.
