Every evening, 14-year-old Tasnia Tasneem waits for her father to finish his day and return home early. As he returns and gets busy with family chores, Tasneem wastes no time to take away his Samsung smartphone. The device is her portal into another world, a world of mobile phone games. But the teenager is not playing them, but practicing how to create new ones and exploring what is beyond.
She was among the batch of 26 students and 13 teachers from 13 government schools in Makthala who recently finished a two-week online course on coding organised by the Telangana Information Technology Association (TITA). Following an online assessment, these students are certified as Telangana Early Coders (TEC) by the University of Texas in Dallas (UTD).
The training programme selected one student each from classes 8 and 9 in the 13 schools along with a teacher from the school. Students learnt Scratch and Python programming languages. Apart from designing games like Apple and Bowl, Cat and Mouse, etc they learnt to develop a calculator and design different quizzes.
