Are you interested in educating the youth with technology skills? Would you like to be part of the Mehackit family?
Mehackit organizes programming and robotics courses in high schools in the Nordics. Our courses have given young students in over 50 towns and cities in the Nordics and UK the chance to experience coding through art, music and hardware. Our enthusiastic instructors, the beginner-friendly content and the online platform help build (technological) self-confidence.
We are now looking for a new programming instructor to guide our course and possible teacher trainings in Swedish high schools, especially in Stockholm and Gothenburg area.
Mehackit trains its instructors for the Mehackit material and content of the course. After the training, the instructor (you?) will hold the course in a high school that has been scheduled in advance. Our vision is to equip the next generation with creative technology skills in a democratic way and wider reach than ever before in history.
What do we expect from Mehackit instructors?
- Skills and interest in programming (basic knowledge in programming, university course completed/MOOC)
- Interest in pedagogy and working with 15-18 year olds
- A creative mindset when it comes to technology
- Fluent skills in Swedish and good English skills
- The ability to describe central concepts of programming in a fun way

"It has been so great to see the students evolve both in programming and creativity. I have learned a lot about pedagogy and the value of creativity on technology education." -Hanna Årström, Mehackit Instructor
"The Mehackit course has been fantastic and a great experience for our students at Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium. They gained some insight to their own understanding about the digital world and programming. They were even able to apply their own interests to the technology projects they built." - John Di Maria, Assistant Principal, Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium
