Carnegie Mellon University Qatar (CMU-Q) recently hosted an activity area featuring Alice Middle East at Darb Al-Saai, in honor of Qatar National Day.

The university partnered with the Qatar Foundation to feature four interactive stations showcasing elements of Alice Middle East.
 
Alice Middle East is a 3-D interactive educational animation software created to help students learn the basics of how to program. The project is being implemented in computing curriculum across schools in Qatar.
 
“Most of the children that we meet have never heard of coding but by the time they finish interacting with Alice, they are able to understand how technology works,” Huda Gedawy, research associate in computer science and curriculum developer at Alice Middle East, said.
