Mahasenpura Open Weekend

Posted on by Tharindu

For the second year running we welcomed the Colombo University Computer Society back to Tissa for an open weekend. Each year the student society conducts a number of workshops across Sri Lanka.

They do this to try and close the IT knowledge gap between rural and urban areas.

The students talked to about 200 O-level pupils from six local schools – Mahasenpura, Osuwinna, Debarawewa Central College, Kawantissapura, Tissa College and Pannagamuwa Royal College.

The Colombo students wanted to give the Tissa students a new outlook by showing them the kinds of IT jobs available and how to apply for them.

They also gave a couple of talks covering computer hardware and how to use the internet
