Hadi appeared before Congress on January 9, 2014, to help boost computer science education in US schools, and his congressional testimony was a big success. House Science & Technology CommitteeChair, Congressman Lamar Smith announced during Hadi’s testimony that he would sponsor the Computer Science Education Act, and he urged others to support it too.
