QU-YSC enhances ICT knowledge of students

Qatar University Young Scientists Centre (QU-YSC) has prepared and presented several courses and workshops in a programme dedicated to information and communications technology (ICT) for students at different academic levels.

The centre launched the programme in 2020 to provide participants with 21st-century skills by improving their capabilities in the field of ICT, developing their creativity and using these skills as a lifelong learning tool.

Accordingly, the centre developed a training programme for high school students in mobile applications development, and specialists delivered several interactive workshops to teach programming languages over several months.

"Although these workshops were implemented virtually using modern learning methods, their output was great. For example, a group of students was able to make an application that helps chemistry students solve all chemical equations easily, and another application that helps visitors of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 to learn about the most important tourist attractions in Qatar, which will guarantee them a distinct experience in Qatar," QU said in a statement.

QU-YSC also offered high school students a programming workshop for digital games, which lasted for five months. Through it, the students learned to develop games using programming languages. The students were able to apply what they learned
