QCRI’s Creative Space holds Open House event for kids
About 100 children aged from kindergarten to Grade 12 were registered for the event within a day of it being announced.
Activities held included creating a bubble machine, making electric cards, developing mobile apps, inventing games using Makey Makey and learning about the Arduino platform to automate activities.
“It's a great opportunity for kids to learn computing skills through fun activities from the earliest possible age. Older children learned about creating prototypes using the Arduino platform as well as learn how to develop mobile apps,” QCRI's Director of Educational Initiatives Dr Eman Fituri said.
“The internal event we held to launch our Creative Space was so popular that the kids didn’t want to leave.”
The Open House was held at QCRI’s base at the Hamad Bin Khalifa Research Complex Multipurpose Room, in Education City.
