Extracurricular Activities for Improving the Perception of Informatics in Secondary Schools
In order to introduce informatic concepts to students of Italian secondary schools, we devised a number of interactive workshops conceived for pupils aged 10–17.

This paper reports about how we designed and conducted these workshops.
