Using the imagination and the programming skills taught in Early Age Programming, the students have managed to create hundreds of games, applications, and animations. From converting the computer keyboard into a piano to a visual animated application of their favorite book, these kids are not only learning core analytical thinking skills but also having fun at the same time. The project was nominated as one of the most innovative initiatives in the education category by the Pakistan Innovation Forum.
In order to showcase the projects created by the students of the first batch of Early Age Programming, an Hour of Code was organized by KPITB, where 30+ students from selected government schools got a chance to showcase their applications to the public and the media. The trainers were also awarded certificates at this event as a token of appreciation for the commendable services rendered in imparting these critical programming skills to school children.
The event took place on Tuesday 26th December from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, at KPITB office, 134, Industrial Estate, Hayatabad, Peshawar. Senior Minister Health and IT, Mr. Shahram Khan Tarakai along with the Secretary STIT were present at the event.
