We held a Coding Day event on 03 February for learners from the schools that are part of the programme this year, at Stellenbosch University’s Fharga computer lab. It served to introduce the learners to programming, and served as an opportunity to select about 100 learners to be part of the programme: the selection process considered many factors, especially the learner’s passion for learning to program and create. The day was a great success, and we are all very excited about the year ahead. The learners had a tremendous amount of fun, and would hardly stop programming to break for snacks and lunch!
Thank you very much to the support team who assisted with the selection process, and to Stellenbosch University and the Fharga staff for their facilities and support.
