Google India Code to Learn Contest - Building a stronger foundation for Computer Science in India

Computing and Computer Science have progressed a great deal from their foundations in Mathematics and Electrical Engineering to being a comprehensive and independent field of study. Programming is the expression of the ideas of Computer Science and at Google we are always thinking of how to make programming fun and easy to learn.

Fortunately there are several modern tools available to us to make programming fun and develop a solid foundation in Computer Science. One of them is Scratch - a programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab.

Google India invites school students from classes 5 to 10 from all over India to explore Scratch and develop projects on it. Students in classes 9 and 10 can develop their projects in Scratch but are also welcome to choose Java or C++. Google's engineers shall judge the project submissions. There are some cool prizes to be won at the end of the contest.
