Ijoko Programming Bootcamp is a free 1-weeks training that gives kids and teenagers between the age of 8 and 18 in the community, the opportunity to learn to program effectively and build projects. Learning to program gives kids more confidence with technology: The fact is, most students won’t go on to become professional coders, but whatever occupation they pursue, learning the basics of coding can give them a sense of confidence with technology.
The programming Bootcamp offers learning flexibility, high returns on investment, and extensive student support services. The Bootcamp also combines instructor-led sessions, independent study, practice assignments, and group projects. These programs provide opportunities to use industry-standard software and technologies. This ensures that students develop strong theoretical foundations and applied knowledge.
It is a great concern to us that most African children are not exposed to the use of technology at a tender age unlike their counterparts in the western world. In a bid to curb this issue, we are making technology more approachable by creating resources designed with empathy for the kids and teenagers in rural areas within Nigeria, and Abule Ijoko happens to be one of those places.
We want to catch their young minds and engage them with tools to help them learn, BUT we need support (funds) to make this dream a reality. The project is open to supervision by you just to foster a better relationship with Rubies Technologies.
Our overarching aim is to improve the learning outcomes and growing interests of children in coding. Our evidence is out there on all our social media platforms and on our website.
