Coding Event for Children Planned

Children as young as 10 can learn the basics of coding at a summer event named CodeKadeh planned in the Iranian capital Tehran.
The event is part of a larger campaign called Hope for Children, which is supported by social entrepreneurs in Tehran. The campaign, funded by Samsung, aims to familiarize 1 million students with at least one coding language. Children who can read and write will learn about basic coding principles and logic through stories and games.
According to Samsung’s PR office, during the summer program, which will run from July 27 to September 21, 150 students of fifth and sixth grade will learn about the basics of algorithms, teamwork and logical arguments used in coding and digital programming. Global corporations are accepting social responsibilities in the countries of their operation. Samsung has launched several programs in Iran to help improve people's everyday lives by increasing their level of knowledge to international standards and creating jobs.
 The Hope for Children campaign started in 2012 and has since launched several educational activities for Iranian children from all types of backgrounds. Notable projects include setting up audio libraries for blind children and an engineering academy for young enthusiasts.
