Summer Stem Camp/ White Board Animation

Our Summer STEM Camp is an intensive 6- weeks summer camp that holds in August, where kids and teens develop practical coding and digital skills. The camp is also designed to help kids & teens in underserved communities experience cool technologies like VR, Drones and 3D Printing. We engage kids & teens from schools in Akure, Ondo State and trained them in a four (4) weeks long summer camp.

The summer camp has two classes, the teens class age 13- 17 and the kids class age 7-12. The curriculum covers programming with scratch, productivity tools like Microsoft word and PowerPoint for presentations, white board animation, Scratch programming, Introduction to Virtual Reality (VR), 3D Printing and Drones technology.

During the 4 weeks we also engage in a STEM evangelism in partnership with Kids & Teens resource Centre to host about 100 kids and teens from rural areas. The aim of this was to make them appreciate tech by having a firsthand experience with it, many of them for the very first time. They learnt about virtual reality, artificial intelligence, data processing, 3D manufacturing and its prospects.

Capacity Building/skill Acquisition

We have realized that there is a significant gap between Nigerians and job opportunities as well as businesses they can start. This gap is the lack of requisite skills without which it is extremely difficult to take advantage of the opportunities that abound.
We create opportunities to train, enhance and improve the skills and employability of young people by equipping them with the skills to get a job or start a business, we work to improve the employment prospects of young Nigerians and ensure skills systems meet the needs of employers and industries.

Our trainings are designed to provide a platform to train and educate individuals on skills that can help create wealth, taking into cognizance the broad framework of the UNDP’s Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) – e.g. eradication of poverty.
Participants will be trained to foster better-informed skill acquisition and produce more creative and well-thought-out services that result in better offerings to the consumer.
