Our journey to provide Science for All
A group of enthusiastic college students decided to do something to give schools kids an opportunity to learn programming at an early age. Hosting around 100 school kids, Codability 1 taught only one course: C++ Programming.
Fostered by the ACM Student Chapter at Princess Sumaya University for Technology, Codability was on a mission to provide Computer Science knowledge to all kids in Jordan regardless of their socioeconomic status. We started offering more courses including: Web Development, Mobile Development using Android, Intro to Arduino, and Intro to Programming using Python to more than 450 school kids.
Spinoff and Specialization
Codability formed its own committee and started working independently of the ACM Student Chapter at PSUT. Our mission statement was updated to reflect our decision to specialize in only two types of courses: Introduction to Computer Science, and Problem Solving.
New volunteering roles devised, including: Course Coordinators, and Academic Counselors.
All camp enrollment operations were moved to our website in place of Google forms.
Our most complete experience up to date. Codability continued seeing an increase in graduation rates for the 6th year running, bringing our rate to 93.6% this year. As we continue to improve our teaching and instructor training material, we are delighted to have been able to give an opportunity to almost 1000 kids to learn and practice Computer Science until this date.
