The Call for Participation launch event took place on 25 November 2019 in Cape Town:
The programme is aimed at under-resourced high schools, and is offered free of charge. We invite such schools in the Cape Metropole and Boland areas who are interested in joining the programme in 2020, to contact us by no later than 15 January. Please include the name and contact details of the school, as well as a paragraph about the school, motivating what it would mean to the learners to partake in this programme.
Learners who participate in the programme will engage with lesson material and with each other through an online platform and community, as well as at workshops and coding clubs. They will need access to the school’s computer lab as they progress through the course material in a self-directed way. Some of the topics covered in the programme are graphics, animation, games and physical computing with programmable electronics.
