MSPs have great interest on teaching young children about technology.
Training at High School
Recently, our team of MSPs went to several high schools in Auckland to run workshops using Touch Develop. In over two weeks, we trained 250 high school students and many successfully completed an app. We received great feedback from students and teachers and we hope to have inspired them for a career in IT!

The campaign is out to get Pinoy kids to embrace computer programming early on because, let’s face it: it’s everywhere. And it’s not that hard to learn.

Microsoft x Hiroo Gakuen x Life is Tech!
From March 6-8th, Microsoft Japan hosted the Microsoft x Hiroo Gakuen Special Camp 2015. The event was participated by 110 Junior High School students. One of the highlights of the camp is the presentation of students on the final day in front of their parents. Others in the camp included an online lecture via Lync from a Microsoft staff in Singapore. In the end, the exposure of student to future technologies and the colorful imagination made the event truly remembering and worthwhile.
Young Tech Fest
On September 9th, the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore held an event called Young Tech Fest which saw students across many educational institutes coming down to try their hand at code and learn more about technology. Microsoft had a booth to showcase our products such as the Microsoft Surface, Xbox One, and Windows 10. The MSPs were on-site to help market Microsoft’s technologies and ran workshops on Kodu, DreamSpark, and Azure Student Benefit.
