We, here at Indraprastha International School celebrated ‘International Girls in ICT Day’ on 23 April, 2015. All most 51 girls from classes IX-XII participated in the event with great enthusiasm and zeal. The session entitled “Gaming and programming with Alice” was a great success. We learnt many basics of the software in prior training sessions given by our teacher and mentor Mrs. Taruna Mongia .It was fun making ‘Six Fishes Swim Together’ using Alice.
