Special Features of the 2023 Edition:
The Kids Code Club Africa 2023 has some exciting features, including an intense Bootcamp and Hackathon, as well as the introduction of two interesting programmes: BlockChain Development and Entrepreneurship.
a. The Bootcamp
This is a free, practical digital capacity building and mentorship project, designed to equip participants with the necessary coding skills. The boot camp for this year is a hybrid one, which means that it is both physical and virtual. It would take place in six states, including Plateau and Abuja, inclusive. We are expecting to have 2,000 participants.
b. Kids in Tech
Conference & Hackathon The kids in tech conference is the showcasing of the talents domiciled in kids, the coming together of critical digital tech stakeholders, educational organizations and professionals, STEM educationists, federal and state government ministries and departments to engage in policy formulation or implementation on the development of tech in Nigeria.
The Hackathon is a great way to introduce children to the world of technology and foster their creativity and problem-solving skills. The Hackathon this year is designed to provide a fun and collaborative environment for children to explore different areas of technology, such as Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Mobile App Development and build their own solutions using these tools to solve real-life problems.
The Hackathon (Coding Competition) would be broken into two categories:
- The Junior Category (9 – 12 years) &
- The Senior Category (13 -16 years).
The finalist for the Junior Category would be awarded a cash prize of N250,000, while the finalist for the Senior category would be awarded a cash prize of N300,000.
