The project organized for junior school students was held by business incubator residents Irina Bezobrazova and Maxim Kholuev.
During the first unit, the children learned the basics of C# programming language from scratch. Under the guidance of the business incubator residents, they learned how to work with variables, commands, cycles and arrays, correct memory segmentation, and conducting calculations through code.
The educational project placed particular emphasis on practice, and was centered on creating actual projects, such as a chat system, a Q&A system, and a calculator.
“The children’s educational project ‘C# Programming’ has been functioning for over a year now, with five groups graduated so far. The project has won a prize of iVolga-2015 youth forum and graduated the School of Social Business, a very actively developing field in Russia. The new round of students for the project will be selected in September 2016,” the press service of the Penza State University informed PenzaNews.
According to the PSU, a new programming course – “Creating Android Apps Using Java” – will potentially go operational in the upcoming school year.
The new course, created in partnership with the regional project “IT-Village,” is designed for more advanced students, the university press service remarked.
