CuriousJr empowers more than 750 school children in Madhya Pradesh to learn to code and create apps through mobile devices
New Delhi 25th May 2023: CuriousJr, India’s pioneering mobile-based coding platform for K12 students, has successfully enabled students from various locations in Madhya Pradesh, including Indore, Bhopal, Gwalior, and Jabalpur, to acquire coding skills and develop a diverse range of apps on their mobile phones.The platform has till now enabled more than 750 school students of Madhya Pradesh mostly hailing from the remote areas of the state.
In today’s digital era, coding has become an indispensable skill, and CuriousJr is dedicated to making it accessible to all. With its user-friendly interface and interactive learning modules, the app/platform caters to students of all ages and backgrounds.
Mridul Ranjan Sahu, Co-founder, and CEO of Curious Jr, expressed, “Our core objective has consistently been to democratize coding education and guarantee its availability to a wide range of students. We are delighted by the students in Madhya Pradesh who have enthusiastically embraced our platform, honed their coding skills, and unleashed their creative potential to develop groundbreaking applications. Our ultimate aim is to ignite a passion for coding in more students and motivate them to pursue careers in the dynamic field of technology.”
CuriousJr’s initiative has provided an opportunity for school children in Madhya Pradesh, who possess a passion for coding but lack access to laptops, to learn coding and develop their own apps using smartphones. Through this initiative, students have gained valuable problem-solving and critical-thinking skills while nurturing their creativity.
A student from Bhopal, Anurag Sharma, shared his experience, saying, “My journey with CuriousJr over the past year has been nothing short of wonderful, offering an incredible learning experience. It has made coding an engaging and captivating process for me. I have discovered a whole new world of possibilities and found coding to be remarkably intriguing. I am immensely grateful to CuriousJr for providing me with such an enriching experience!”
CuriousJr’s efforts in Madhya Pradesh mark just the beginning of its mission to make coding accessible to all, regardless of their geographical or socioeconomic background. The app/platform continually enhances its features and expands its reach to enable more students to learn to code and develop invaluable skills for the future.
CuriousJr aims to enable students without access to laptops to learn coding on their mobile devices, considering that 88% of K12 students in India lack laptop accessibility. The team envisions and innovates coding for small displays, empowering students to study and code on mobile devices. The COVID lockdown raised awareness about coding, leading the government to make it a mandatory subject in the school curriculum. However, the majority of users and schools still lack access to laptops or desktop computers, posing a challenge for mobile-based code learning. CuriousJr strives to bridge this gap, providing access to coding education to people across the country.
