Voices from the ground

In this evolving world of science, everything comes from the minds of creative people. Learning to code makes it easier to build this skill, which will eventually be used to solve real-world problems. Innovative thinking and solutions help students take their first step in a world where everything is increasingly computer controlled. Starting early is the only way forward. This is a great initiative from HT. I wish the organizers and participants every success!
