Abstract: This paper describes the design research in which attractive and challenging educational material for Computational Thinking has been developed, tested and evaluated in co-creation with (pre)vocational education teachers. This educational material was designed for students from (pre)vocational education and aimed at the development of Computational Thinking knowledge and skills in a relevant professional context. The materials for Computational Thinking have been tested in practice and evaluated for relevance, practical usability, attractiveness and significance in light of future profile selection.
