It is not every day that you hear grade 7 kids participating in a university level bootcamp- especially those hailing from the underprivileged strata of the society. On 19th January, 2019 the young stars from Khud raised many an eyebrow when they participated in the bootcamp organized by TechJuice at the University of Central Punjab.
The one-day bootcamp on Python covered an intense 4-hour curriculum designed to give participants complete, basic programming skills to use in their studies or workplaces. The bootcamp featured speakers and mentors from Arbisoft, one of the most prominent software houses in Pakistan.
Despite their young age, our kids were able to successfully grasp most of the python related concepts delivered at the bootcamp. This was largely possible due to their training in the programming course that was part of Khud’s digital curriculum. The mentors were very happy to see the excitement and confidence our students had shown. The bootcamp successfully managed to provide the much-needed exposure to the kids.
We would like to thank Techjuice for letting our kids be a part of this event. And wish them good luck with such future initiatives and look forward to continue participating in such events and in greater numbers.
