What is Teach?
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But only 51% of all high schools teach computer science. The good news is, we’re on our way to changing this! At ACM BPDC, we’re working hard to bridge the gap and introduce students to computer science well before they get to college. For that we introduced- Teach an initiative by ACM BPDC which focuses on developing Computer Science-related skills among school students.
Hour of Code, Dubai International Academy
If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history - more than 100 million students around the world have tried an Hour of Code. The students created their own apps or games which they showed their parents, and also received Hour of Code e-certificates and ACM goodies (stickers, pens, and bags) they could take home. And, it was fun! With interactive, hands-on activities, students learnt computational thinking skills in an approachable way.
