“Programming is everyone’s right” has always been our moto! To put this moto into action, Hello World Kids never misses a chance in being an active contributor in the world.
Learning programming has become much alike learning how to write. It’s becoming the new language of the age. In order to embrace this revolution, Hello World Kids, with the support of Crown Prince Foundation (CPF), worked with the Ministry of Education to embed Hello World Kids curriculum as a compulsory school subject in public schools for the elementary stage. The program covers fourth to sixth graders.
This adaption marks Jordan as the first country to start teaching programming for kids across the region, hoping to build a generation that better understands the technology they use and encourage them to become technology producers.
Kids Programming Mondial
Hello World Kids kicked off the Kids Programming Mondial in 2016 to break down all the boundaries that could limit any kid from learning the language of the age.
After the teams are formed, a sponsored training course is conducted on Hello World Kids curriculum. By the end of the course, each team shall submit their project and the winner is then announced.
The mondial is a result of leveraging the powers of all the organizations that believes in empowering and improving the educational system, not only in Jordan, but across the region.
The National Little Programmer Contest
To level things up & keep the wheel of learning going, the National Little Programmer contest follows the mondial. This contest is the first of its kind in MENA.
The contest includes students from other schools that adopted the Hello World Kids curriculum, in addition to the outstanding kids who participated in the mondial.
The content of the contest is characterized by being purely programmatic content, in the sense that the competition is to solve the challenges programmatically quickly and error-free. And the distinction between competitors through only the written code to solve the challenges of the competition.
Teaching Deaf & Mute kids
In 2015, Hello World Kids contributed in an inspiring initiative to enable deaf & mute kids by teaching them programming under the patronage of HRH Princess Basma Bint Talal. The agreement took place in the open day held in Al-Raja’a school and was signed by the CEO & Founder of Hello World Kids Mrs. Hanan Khader and the executive manager of the fund Mrs. Farah Daghestani.
