Want to be a future digital leader? That's the ethos of LTS, open to 11-19 year olds, for free! For a feel of what they do, watch the Game Dev finale by livestream this Saturday.
Since its launch in 2016, the Luxembourg Tech School has been a soaring success and continues to grow, attracting students from all over Luxembourg.
Initially aimed at 15-19 year olds, the extracurricular concept was to support digital learning via teamwork and projects with a real business context. Students blend newly acquired coding skills with artistic, creative and business ideas, then present their work to industry leaders in English.
“Students of each of our programs follow Business and Technology driven courses divided into three blocks. They get personalised coaching, have the chance to get in touch with industry experts and work on their own projects, which they showcase at the end of each block. These modules are always linked with teamwork, problem solving, leading with tech and develop your own ideas”, says Dr. Sergio Coronado, Co-Founder of LTS.
Level One covers Game Dev, Fintech and Big Data. Level Two delves into Space Resources, AI for Fintech. But with copious time at home recently, came further development.

Quarantine Accelerated LTS Online
LTS always intended to create an online course, in perhaps one to two years. With the COVID-19 lockdown, they created two courses in two weeks.
(1) Game Dev Challenge launched in April 2020.
“We followed the students and coached them for 6 weeks in order to support them in the creation of a game. We organised live sessions each week and new learning material every weekend. They learned to create a game from scratch using Unity, which is a professional game engine as well as coding, Art, Design, Storytelling and Remote Teamwork”, says Ralph Marschall Co-Founder of LTS.
(2) Digital Creators
“From September on, we will additionally offer a new Digital Creators program for younger students aged 11-14 years, where they will create their own digital artworks and animations and at the same time learn the basics of coding and digital thinking", concludes Sara Kaiser Program Director at LTS.
To register for for the "Future Digital Leaders" and "Digital Creators" programs are open here.
