The Working to Advance STEM Education for African Women (WAAW) Foundation with the mission is to empower African women and young minds to become impactful leaders, change agents and technology innovators through STEM engagement will organize a code school this spring from April 9th to 13th at 64 Kudirat Abiola Way, Oregun, Lagos.

WAAW Lagos code school will bring children (both boys and girls) between the ages of 10 to 17 years from different backgrounds together and provide them access to real world technology and 21st century curriculum delivered by experienced facilitators. Our novel curriculum will train participants on:
• Mobile App Development (Using Ionic Framework),
• Web Development (Using HTML, CSS & WordPress),
• 2D animation Using SCRATCH,
• 3D Animation Using JAVA (ALICE),
• Blockly Programming (MAZE & TURTLE GRAPHICS)
• Programming Microcontrollers Using ARDUINO
• Students Profile Development (Using Wixsite) showcasing their talents and projects
• Connect with International Computer Scientists
• Career Talk,
• Field Trip
• Certified as a Code School Participant …….and lots more.

The uniqueness of WAAW Lagos code school is in its teaching methodology and learning resources. Participants at the code school will learn with unique methodology that is suitable for critical and creative thinking.

At WAAW Foundation, we believe that young minds are plain platforms, flexible enough to receive as much and ready to take in anything new. It is therefore important that they have productive events around them to make them resourceful and enhance their skills in making favorable use of technology. This eventually leads them to become community change agents by using technology to solve problems. So, WAAW Foundation designed a creative and easy-to-learn curriculum for summer Code school.
There are no bounds to the curiosity, creativity, critical thinking and logical reasoning of these young minds. They may as well have a mind blowing yet simple solution to the various challenges in our society. Hence, WAAW is developing the teenagers early for such innovation to happen.

Applications are currently ongoing and will close March 31st 2018. Interested applicants should click to apply, http://waawfoundation.wufoo.com/forms/code-school-application-form/.
