Are you a representative from a school, university, ‘hacker space’, science center or community center? Are you a school teacher, university teacher, coding trainer, want-to-be trainer or a professional coder? Are you involved or would you like to be involved in teaching and promoting coding to children and youth? Africa Code Week may have just the right opportunity for you to step in.
Throughout the year, Africa Code Week hosts live Train-the-Trainer sessions where you can acquire all the skills you need to train your peers and teach coding to young people in your community. Once trained and with all relevant teaching materials in hand, you will be able to introduce your students to the fun things that can be done with code, encouraging them to explore and master challenging concepts in programming and game design.
Spread the word and invite everyone to participate!
Support the planning and execution of workshops, as per the Africa Code Week guidelines, in your own venue(s):
- Get adults trained during one of our free Train-the-Trainer sessions or online.
- Host coding workshops for children & youth (October 18-25)
- Register your events on the Africa Code Map later this year.
- Reach out to your local ACW Ambassador anytime for support.
Leverage the Africa Code Week network, infrastructure and communications tools to promote your workshops!
Are you the teacher, guardian or parent of children aged between 8 and 11? Would you like to teach them basic coding skills in an interactive and playful way? The free openSAP course 'Teaching Programming to Young Learners' is just for you! It will help you kick-start your Africa Code Week journey with the right tools in hand, even if you’ve never written a line of code in your life.
