Child Husam Haraz: A Promising Future in Programming

Husam Haraz, 13 years old, is a member of the Qattan Club for Programmers which he joined in 2011 at the Qattan Centre for the Child in Gaza. 

Husam found what he was missing in programming. He was first introduced to programming through the "Scratch" course, which teaches the principles of programming in an interesting way. He was a distinguished participant among his peers, showing strong ability to solve any programming problem facing him. He has since become a premier member of the club, and has programmed educational courses for children under six years old in the fields of writing, distinguishing shapes and colours and identifying differences. Presently, Husam is receiving training on programming three-dimensional objects using ALICE. He has to date shown distinction and promise for a future career in programming and its various applications.
