New Delhi [India], February 24 (ANI/India PR Distribution): With the invaluable support of the Ambassador of France to India and the Ambassador of India to France, E-mma organization will launch the #CodeAtHome initiative in India on International Women's Day.
This initiative joins the stream of many domestic programs including India's highly innovative Atal Tinkering Labs setup in thousands of schools for underprivileged children providing a platform for kids for a technology-enabled future.
The purpose of this global initiative is to enable millions of kids and teens to participate in free online coding workshops held weekly. This would bring together the youth of India and other countries towards a brighter future through the promotion of wider access to technology. #CodeAtHome is aimed at kids aged 8 to 12 years old and teens aged 13 to 16 years old.
India is a hub of software and technology and has fuelled technological advancement worldwide. As India makes strides towards widening access to digital resources at the grass-root levels, particularly among women, the launch of #CodeAtHome would act as a force multiplier in building digital inclination among young minds at their formative years.
Through pedagogical sessions, kids and teens will develop their algorithmic thoughts in order to learn to solve complex problems and to discover the world of programming using languages such as Python, Swift, Scratch, JavaScript and many others.
They will also expand their creativity and explore the possibilities offered by technology and its application in areas such as artificial intelligence, robotics, the cloud and many others.
