- Promote Computer Science (CS) education
- Run initiatives that reach girls, underrepresented minorities, and students facing socio-economic barriers under age 18
The Project details…
We aim to hold Computer Science Holiday Boot Camps in Kenya for girls between ages 12 to 18 in the months of April, August and December Holidays. The aim of this program is to introduce Computer Science to girls at an early age as well as increase their interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Education) related subjects, through activities that promote knowledge and discovery. For a long time the technology sector has faced allegations of being a male dominated sector. Girls fear taking up technical subjects and have been underrepresented in this area. The program aims to open up their minds for future opportunities in this field.
More details on this project will be posted soon, so keep it here.
