What is Kids Can Code Kenya

Kids Can Code is an initiative for young people aged 10 - 17 years to learn Computer Science concepts and become active contributors to the digital economy. This graduates them from consumers to confident creators / producers with technology as a tool. In a digitally fueled world, it is paramount to teach young people how to use technology in a healthy way and impart skills and habits that make them productive digital citizens. Computational skills gained will be a great foundation for the young people by inspiring problem solving, analytical and critical thinking skills. Thinking computationally is beneficial to logic and philosophy skills as well as STEM oriented subjects leading to improved academic performance.

Why Kids Can Code?

The curriculum is designed to help learners think computationally which is beneficial to logic and philosophy skills as well as STEM oriented subjects. This will help them improve in their academics and gain 21st century skills. The core topics to be covered are CS-unplugged and Computational thinking, Web design, Coding, Databases, Robotics and App development, Animations and Game development. The kids will benefit in the following ways.

  1. A curriculum that prepares them for the digital future.
  2. Understanding of various CS concepts.
  3. Computational skills will inspire problem solving, analytical and critical thinking skills.
  4. Improved performance in STREAM (Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) related fields.
