Princess Leonor supports the campaign for programming education in schools

The Princess of Girona, along with the Infanta Dona Sofia, and a group from Generation Teachers participated in the awards ceremony. She also attended a workshop entitled "The Hour of Code" given by Hadi Partovi, founder of code.org.

The last portion of the event was attended by the King and Queen, as well as the Foundation's advisory board. They had the chance to share their training experience with Princess Diana and the Infanta.

Aula Planeta, code.org and the Princess of Girona Foundation work together to teach programming skills to Spanish teachers. The aforementioned foundation organized a 'Talent Tour through Spanish Cities' during which the King and Queen had the chance to take part in various code.org activities in Malaga and Guadalajara.

According to "Computer Science Education in Spain 2015", 82% and 76% of parents don't know much about computer science and the subjects that make it up.

Code.org is an initiative that was launched in the United States in 2013. It consists of a platform for training students and teachers. The platform has been translated into over 70 languages and is currently used by over a million teachers and 40% American students.

Many global political, economic, and social leaders have endorsed the organization, including former President Barack Obama or current one Joe Biden; Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the four previous presidents of our nation; or Jose Maria Alvarez -Pallete, president of Telefonica.

Students from all parts of the globe have participated in more than 1,000,000,000 times in "The Hour of Code", a global campaign that aims to simplify programming. It is an application that teaches basic concepts of programming and encourages creativity, problem-solving, logic, and logic.

The Princess of Girona Foundation is active in supporting young teachers through its Educational Transformation Area and its 'Generation Teachers’ program. Aulaplaneta, which is the education area of Planeta Group, facilitates the teaching task via digital, modular, and customizable curricular resources, has joined Code.org to help spread its work.
