National Little Programmers Competition Launches in Jordan
Starting with the Technological Education we all are aware of how technology has become an integral part of our daily life, and programming plays an important and unique role in technology development through applications and inventions that cannot be taken for granted in our world today.
Teaching programming for the upcoming generation contributes to strengthening their analytical and logical thinking skills, in addition to expanding their awareness and developing their creativity. These skills result in enabling the children to find the simplest solutions to complex problems, as analytical thinking helps them to divide the problem to several small challenges and solve them separately, until they reach to a comprehensive solution in an analytical and correct way.
We at Hello World Kids believe in the children potentials and we strive to invest in them to create a generation of creative children who are capable of change positively. Starting from our endeavor to make programming available to all children from different segments of society, the idea of Hello World Kids National Little Programmers Competition emerged to serve the society, and was initiated in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in 2017 as a project and an annual award.
Hello World Kids National Little Programmers Competition 2020 target’s children from age 7 – 12 years old in partnership with Al Hussein Technical University and the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship; where children will start self-learning programming through our educational online platform HelloCode that was developed by Hello World Kids, the registration started in the beginning of February 2020.
Under the circumstances of COVID 19 outbreak the date of the competition will be announced upon further notice to compete to reach to the finalists.
The winners will be announced at a grand closing ceremony and the first top three finalists will be honored with financial prizes.
