Last week, Audax hosted a a one-hour Introduction to Computer Science, joining dozens of organisations around the world in a global commemoration of the global Computer Science Education Week. I was invited, but couldn’t make it. So Aniedi sent me pictures. It looks like most of the active participants were kids.
One hour though, is that enough? The event’s description says it is intended to “demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, and an innovator”.
“A spark can set a forest ablaze”, says Aniedi Udo-Ubong, Audax CEO.
Earlier in the year, we listed Audax Code Schools as one of the initiatives that are getting Nigerian kids into tech.
Audax is also hosting free Christmas Coding Boot Camp targeted at primary and secondary school students starting from today and ending on the 19th. Support for these events are coming from Sterling Bank and Google Nigeria.
