    Who says that programming is boring?

    From May 8th to 10th, graduate school AIPHES invited pupils from the Justus-Liebig-School Darmstadt to the workshop „Adventure Data Journalism“. They spent exciting days at TU Darmstadt's Department of Computer Science and were introduced to the world of programming. In a case study, the seventh-grade girls and boys took on the role of assistants to a data journalist who is supposed to analyse texts about a certain issue and to present the results in an interesting short film for a chief editor of a fictitious online magazine.
