Exeter, iMorph empower students with Hour of Code activities
Over 140 students from Ramakrishna Mission schools and the Don Bosco School of Excellence participated in the Hour of Code initiative organized by Exeter Academy, the learning division of Exeter Premedia Services and iMorph. The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week, from December 9 to 15.
Mr. Dorai Thodla of iMorph and Mr. Ravi Venkataramani of Exeter Premedia took the opportunity of conducting an hour-long workshop for students who had zero knowledge in programming. The kids were filled with enthusiasm and loved the Hour of Code experience.
“It was an exhilarating experience. We were trying to convey to the 7th and 8th graders that coding can be fun and help improve their thinking skills. We saw evidence of that in every school we participated in. All these kids are self-learners and are driven by the joy of solving problems. That was really nice to see. We thank Exeter Academy for organizing these visits and being there with us in all the schools,” said Mr. Dorai Thoda in a statement.
The Hour of Code initiative is a global movement by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org who have managed to reach millions of students through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming.
“The children were full of energy and bubbling with ideas. I could clearly sense the feeling of achievement in each of these kids as they completed the various challenges. The Hour of Code is indeed a brilliant initiative that shows kids how much fun computer science can be as well as boost their confidence in their own abilities,” said Ravi Venkataramani, CEO of Exeter Premedia. “Mr. Thodla and other volunteers did a fantastic job in making this happen and we look forward to working with iMorph on all our school outreach activities in the coming months.”
The Hour of Code creates an opportunity for every student to learn computer science. This effort helps the students nurture their problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity.
