In this event, Smt.Smriti Zubin Irani, Minister of Human Resources, congratulating the students, said "India's future is in the hands of this young tech generation. We must empower them to effectively use technology to better their world and of the society they live in. I am hopeful some of these students, not just those who won but all those participated will further pursue academic and research in the technology domain and make our nation proud. I will encourage Google to sustain and scale this".

Mr. Chetan Krishnaswamy, Country Head, Public Policy, said, "We thank the HRD Ministry for their support towards the contest and are looking forward to seeing the innovation and creativity that students will present to us via their projects. Who knows which one of the innovative students in India will go ahead to create something as revolutionary as a self-driving car?"

"Traditionally programming has been associated with learning a programming language, writing lines and lines of code and spending a lot of time debugging it. But, at Google, we believe that students can actually be introduced to programming and Computer Science in a much more fun and engaging way," he added.

As many knows, several tools and methods for introducing programming to school students have been around but two of the most prominent of those are Scratch: and App Inventor: - both developed at MIT. Students can create a wide variety of projects that include Games, Animations, Story-telling and even Android apps; all of that without writing even one line of programming language code! with using these two apps / tools for Smartphone.

The Minister also launched the 2016 edition of the Code to Learn contest. If you would like to know how to participate in Google's Code to Learn competition for 2016? Then go ahead.
