  Telegram was once an important telecommunication tool before the 1980s. Students at that era were interested in exploring telegraph transmitters and Morse code. After the reform and opening-up, scientific education drew increasing attentions. Along with the increasing popularization of computers and development of information technology, programming becomes popular in schools. In this era of AI technology, programing is an essential skill for teenagers.
