Academic Enrichment Day: Software Engineering

Recently, we had an Academic Enrichment Day focused on software engineering. Our guest speaker for the day was an aspiring software engineer currently studying in college. He had been working closely with our foundation to provide insight and guidance to our youth interested in this field. He talked about the different paths one could take in software engineering and how to get started in this exciting industry.

During the talk, our youth participated in a fun and engaging game that helped them understand how computers follow instructions. The game involved giving instructions to a person to make a sandwich, but with the twist that the person following the instructions was representing a computer. The students quickly realized that computers are very literal and that they needed to be extremely specific with their instructions. Despite the initial struggles, the students had a lot of fun with the game and learned some valuable lessons about software engineering in the process.
