Africano affirms that he felt the concern that all students could begin to approach programming and break with the famous myth that it is an area that can only be developed at the university. He also considers that "it is necessary to handle a second language and nowadays it is necessary to handle the programming language".
"We got third place, very good for the first year we participated and the first year we are working completely with the Arukay platform. Now we must take steps so that it is not only one student who stands out but many more, including girls who can also stand out in STEM"
Jeckson considers it important that other institutions integrate regardless of whether their programming knowledge is not as extensive, since teachers also acquire and expand their knowledge in programming with the learning system, during development.
