Africa Code Week – get involved!
Coding is is everywhere to be found in our daily lifes, however, in Africa, less than 1% of children leave school with basic coding skills. Knowing how to code could increase their income by 40% to 200%, acting now is essential to help youngsters seize the opportunities the digital sector can offer.
From October 1 to 10, hundreds of playful coding workshops will be organized for three different age groups in South Africa, Angola, Cameroon, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia, Togo and Egypt.
Teachers interested in hosting coding workshops will be trained and children aged 8-11 to be among the first to engage in this historical initiative. Get involved and participate in the pilot event.
Africa Code Week is an educational initiative by SAP, Simplon, Galway Education Center and Cape Town Science Centre and will take place in October 2015 across 11 countries.
