Hour of Code - start of new developments

Hour of Code - start of new developments

How and when did Bill Gates and Steve Jobs learn programming, the whole world knows. Nut how Armenian schoolchildren learn programming, is known only to those 300 children who participated in the Hour of Code, initiated by Microsoft Innovation Center Armenia and Ayb School on December 18. During a few hours the participants learnt the programming logic and started enjoying the coding process. It was a picture to see how enthusiastically children of various ages consult with their mentor and after receiving instructions find solutions. It is worth to mention that the best programmers of Armenian leading IT companies were consulting in the role of mentors, sharing their knowledge with great enthusiasm and encouraging the students try again until they reach their final goal. Without our dedicated mentors the event would not be as successful and efficient as it is.

For the first time Gyumri, the second biggest city of Armenia hosted Hour of Code initiative, organized by Microsoft Innovation Center Armenia and Gyumri Technology Center. On December 7 more than 150 schoolchildren of various grades come together to learn coding through SoloLearn application, which has developed a specific lesson plan for Hour of Code. Programming is still new to schoolchildren and the enthusiasm and energy of the Hour of Code inspired not all participants but also the Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan to try learning coding. He wrote his first CSS code and felt the victory of writing a code which went live. He was excited to see that tech education is getting more and more popular in Gyumri and expressed his willingness to support this mood spreading in every corner of Armenia.
Microsoft Innovation Center Armenia continues the road of Hour of Code in Armenia and the next stop will be Yerevan with more than 300 students from various cities and villages of Armenia.
