Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice

between what is right and what is easy.

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is going through rough times, You-Know-Who is attacking again but this time he is stronger than ever. Harry Potter can’t defend the whole school on his own but you knowNo good sittin’ worryin’ abou’ it. What’s comin’ will come, an’ we’ll meet it when it does. .

Harry doesn’t have to face the dark lord on his own, for you are prepared to pick up your wand and fight in the ultimate battle.

Don’t think that you can’t do it; It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

The sessions you attended all semester have magically turned into spells to help you defeat the great evil we are about to witness.

Unfortunately we are running out of time so you have to practice your spells day and night in order to master them.

Worry not, we are not heading into the battlefield blind; the most prodigious professor Albus Dumbledore has left us clues to help us defend Hogwarts:

Clue one: the war will take place from Friday the 10th of Feb till Thursday the 16th of Feb.

Clue two: an online battle will be held to qualify you to an offline contest (The Ultimate Battle).

Clue three: to be a part of the magical army who will participate in the upcoming battles, you need to fill this form: http://acmascis.org/Forms/Level1Contest17/

The form deadline is Sunday the 12th of Feb at 11:59 pm.

Always remember:

It is important,to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then could evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated.

Great words! We all believe that CS is very important… Now, what?

An event called Hour of Code is designed to reach tens of millions of students in 180+ countries to broaden the computer science community and demystify “code”. Hour of Code will show you that anybody can start from scratch. You might need some ingredients like mathematics rules, science and most importantly, hard-work.

Our event is targeting schools which will be announced soon.

Once upon a time there was a boy called “Mohamed“, he was a student at FCIS. Rumor has it that this is one of the most difficult colleges ever. He was scared, helpless, and there was nothing he could do about it.

To make matters worse, he started to have nightmares that we told you about one of them at the What’s CS event, but after that event, he realised that college is not as difficult as everyone thought it is as it just needs hard work. So he started to feel a little better about being an FCISian, he even got excited about it. But he still didn’t know how or where to start and here comes acmASCIS junior training which will help introduce you to the world of Computer Science.

Your journey with us is about to begin. we are here to help you, but your hard-work, commitment, and dedication are the things that will push you forward!

So are you ready for Level 1 Training?

Level 1 Training is where you get to know more about problem solving, it’s on a weekly basis starting from next week and it’s completely free.

المخطوطة وابن بطوطة

"إن ما حدث لا يصدقه عقل! ما رأيته تلك الليلة، كنت أقف في مناوبة الحراسة ببوابات المتحف و إذ فجأةً، وجدت مخطوطة ملقاة على الأرض بجانب باب المتحف، لم أستطع كبح فضولي،  ففتحتها وقرأت ما فيها :

"عندما ينسى العالم معلمونا، سيستيقظ ابن بطوطة بعد أن تقرأ المخطوطة ليبحث عنهم  وعن آلاتهم المفقودة، ليذكر العالم مجدداً بإنجازاتهم المعدودة."

كنت أعتقد أنها مزحة سخيفة من أحد طلاب المدارس، لكن ما حدث بعد ذلك أشبه بالأساطير! وجدت شخصاً ما يخرج من باب المتحف، يقترب إلي...كيف لأحد أن يكون بداخل المتحف فيمثل هذا الوقت؟! 

هذا ليس ممكناً، إلا إذا كان هذا الشخص...من سكان المتحف!

إذاً، فالمخطوطة ليست مزحة، إنه (ابن بطوطة) بالفعل...ويبدو أنه يبحث عن شئ ما…لابد أنه يبحث عن هؤلاء … معلمونا …"

ماذا سيفعل ابن بطوطة؟ وكيف سينفذ المهمة الموجودة في المخطوطة؟ اكتشف بنفسك يوم الأربعاء 24/ 2  الساعة 12:00 ظهراً مع

 المخطوطة وابن بطوطة 😀
