We are a group of individuals wanting to create a community where we can encourage children and young women to learn how to code. By doing so, we would like to provide a free coding bootcamp course where the girls will be able to attend it and learn to become technology innovators. From coding and game development to robotics and design, we want to help build in-demand skills and innovate like a pro with industry-standard tech tools. We are inspired by the Technovation community program by iridiscent.
With that, this funding is required to fund for projects for these young girls. We target girls age 7-16 years of age. Skills they will learn from this bootcamp :
- Critical Thinking
- Problem-solving skills
- Courage to try new things
- Math skills
- Processing skills
- Team building
Funds will be used to pay instructors, facilitators and also to purchase tablets, Arduino packs, Cozmos, etc for use for the class projects. Each student signing up for the bootcamp course will be give a certificate and free T-shirt.
