“Hour of Code” Visits Fan Noli Middle School

The U.S. Embassy in Tirana was pleased to join EDS Foundation in promoting the “Hour of Code” initiative and give the opportunity to Albanian students to learn computer science. Michael McCord, the Information Management Specialist from the Embassy’s Information Programs Office visited Fan Noli Middle School in Tirana to teach coding to students. Mr. McCord explained the basics of coding and computer science theory and fielded questions from students. Together they played a simple video game and dissected the various components of the game so the students could learn how to build their own game. Mr. McCord hopes that this initiative will spark an interest for some of the kids to think about computer science as a future career.
