In order to master the challenges of digitization as adults, pupils need a broad basic education in computer science. However, teachers often lack the right tools to teach subjects such as software development or IT security. In the new open-source teaching software laboratory at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), students will gain practical experience in the development of open-source software and at the same time develop materials for teaching computer science.
