The last city of our roadshow project was Kediri. Yes it was the second time we were there. On our previous visit, we gave Android training to SMK Plus Darussalam students, but in this time we invited all the junior high school students around Kediri to join on our Greenfoot training in SMK Hasan Kafrawi's computer laboratory.


Why we introduced Greenfoot to the junior high school students? 
Well, many children interests to start the computer by playing games. This game can be used to introduce children to the world of programming. In other words, children are taught programming techniques by creating educational simple game. The platform which suitable for introducing kids 13+ to programming is Greenfoot. By making 2D game using Greenfoot we expected to attract children to learn programming language.


Indirectly, we introduce basic of Java programming (OOP) to them. Greenfoot is easy to use because there're assistive device such as a class browser, editor and compiler. When creating a game we're playing with the scenario. Scenario is a logical step of build a game.


For example we build a simple game scenario called Mr.Crab. The scenario is a Crab can move or turn to eat the Worm. Then the Crab has an enemy who will eat it named Lobster. 


By teaching them to create a game scenario , it'll hone their fantasy and creativity.

Still about our roadshow project, the second city which we visited was Purwokerto. If at the previous roadshow we visited vocational high school, in Purwokerto we visited polytechnic named STT Telematika Telkom Purwokerto. We only spent 2 days here, the first day we met with the director to discuss about polytechnic curriculum then giving Android training to the lecturers.


The next day was the college students's turn who got Android training from us. Some of them joined because Android was new to them, and some of them were familiar with android even working on the final project to create a mobile application using Android.

Today i'm back to Jakarta routine after about one month promotes Java and Android in Jepara, Purwokerto and Kediri. This's our second roadshow project. You can check my post about our first roadshow project on my previous post.

The first city which we visited was Jepara. We were there for 2 weeks in SMK Hasan Kafrawi. SMK Hasan Kafrawi was the first vocational high schools in Jepara who founded software engineering majors. They welcomed us very well because it was the first time they would got Java and Android training.


Our first day there we gathered in the hall in order to deliver Meruvian's jTechnopreneur program to SMK Hasan Kafrawi students. Then our next agenda we gave Java and Android training to the students which divided into 3 groups. Moreover, there were 10 college students from Fatahilla University who joined with the training.


When the training for students done, the next day we invited all the IT teacher around Jepara to discuss about curriculum and "Meruvian Seamless Education" . We socialized that every thing would be related to IT. We expected the schools immediately updated their curriculum, so they weren't left with the development of the IT world which rapidly increasing. The follow up of the seminar was we gave Java and Android training for the teachers.


Our last agenda was provided JENI 1 certification for students or teachers who wish to have JENI 1 (OOP) certificate. The picture below showed when they did the certification test. If their score over than 70 it means they passed the test and entitled to receive certificate. but if their score less than 70 they must did the remedial test.
