Protik Center in collaboration with Microsoft Albania would like to inform the startup of the global campaign The Hour of Code in Albania.

The Hour of Code will start during the Education Week with Computer Science, 08 - 12 December, in the whole world, including Albania, thanks to the partnership of Microsoft Corporate with Code.org. 

Through the Microsoft YouthSpark, we are helping the young people in Albania, that already  use computer science technology in the educational field, to increase their creativity in the computer science field. The moto of the campaign will be Everyone starts somewhere

The programming code is carried out through Microsoft software and resources (such as, Microsoft TEALS, TouchDevelop,  Kodu Cup, and Imagine Cup) in collaboration with the  Protik Center.  This campaign will be supported by Code.org and Microsoft, which is the leader of the global campaign.

During the Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14), every student of the Electrical Technical School “Gjergji Canco” and “Emin Duraku” will be trained and will learn a programming language. The students will create different computer games that will be presented at the closing event on December 11th 2014.

We would like to invite you to be part of the final event that will be organized December 11th 2014, 9:30 – 11:30 AM. At this event we will have the opportunity to see the programming code created by the students and online videos that show the support of world leaders and artists for this campaign.
