It is really encouraging to see that there are so many startups out there who want to give children early exposure to the possibilities of technology. If you have been around Techzim for some time then you’ll be aware of Impact Hub Harare and Maker Club who also offer similar courses. The former recently announced that it’s Coding for Kids course is back this August.
I really like the competition that is emerging in this space of edutech. Parents and students will have a plethora of courses to choose from which vary in cost, when and where they are held
As tech advancements continue ever since Africa has been importing technologies from neighbouring continents. This is not because Africans are not smart or innovative enough. The result is lack of exposure. The best way to master innovation is through understanding the fundamentals. Most graduates learn these fundamentals at University level. If these fundamentals are introduced and understood at a tender age, we sure would have more innovative engineers.Kids Pro
