Do you remember Brace Kids?
In August we published an article about this initiative that is aimed at educating kids between 7-17 years on how to code. The initiative is led by a company called Oneplace Technologies Limited under the name Brace Kids.
Well, Brace Kids has expanded and is now targeting to educate one million kids in Africa on how to write software. Brace Kids was also highlighted in a live show on K24 by Ian Wafula due to its outstanding approach and promise to our continent. Ever since, it has been a subject of interest starring internationally in blogs and forums.
That aside, Brace Kids is now taking in 150 kids for the first phase of its training. This will happen in Kenya. Schools are closing for a long period and many parents don’t know what to do with their children who are at times nagging and unsettled. Brace Kids is starting a free pilot course on “Children in Programming” where enrolled kids shall be taught what it takes to be masters of the software world.
This is an important skill especially in the technology world of today.
“Due to the high demand and less space, we are only taking 150 kids on ‘first come first serve’ bases”, said Zack, Kenya’s initiatives manager. ”The training is free for all kids, however, parents will be required to purchase a Brace Kids t-shirt from our offices for their kid for purposes of uniformity.”
The t-shirt is KES 1,000 which also marks the enrollment. ”
Brace Kids training is set to begin soon and space is filling up very fast. Enroll your kid early by sending an email to [email protected] or dialing 0796 511 164
