For 2 years the CcHUB has run the Summer of Code, a holiday programme to introduce young people to computer programming. This year, we are excited to be back bigger and better as we bring the Summer of Code to 4 new cities in Nigeria.
The Summer of Code is a 4-week, fun, intense programme to introduce young people aged 5-18 years to computer programming. As part of our commitment to growing a new generation of digital makers we are excited to bring the Summer of Code to Abuja, Enugu, Osun and Oyo, in addition to Lagos.
We are seeking organisations that operate in these cities to partner with us to host the summer of code in their city. We are especially looking for organisations that will be able to provide the following:
– Venue: spacious and adequately furnished to comfortably accommodate 50 kids, and their facilitators.
– Equipment: display screens, either computer monitors or T.V screens; and projectors
– Power supply: access to constant power supply (availability of a standby generator or other backup source of power).
As a plus, hosts that will be willing or able to continue to accommodate lessons after the duration of the 4 weeks will be given preference.
To adequately run the sessions, we will provide partners with the following:
-Facilitators: working with volunteers in each host city, facilitators will be trained and deployed to lead the sessions.
-Learning resources: the devices, as well as curriculum and teaching materials will be provided, to ensure a consistent experience throughout the different locations.
If you are interested in partnering with us, or inquiries reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About The Summer of Code
The CcHUB Summer of Code is a 4-week summer programme; one of to introduce young people aged 5-18 to computer programming. Through the Summer of Code, kids will learn new skills and tools to express their creativity. The program culminates in a Demo Day where students proudly present projects they’ve built to their parents, peers and invited guests.
By participating in the Summer of Code, kids are equipped with new skills which are critical for the 21st century. Kids learn to build computer games and animations, design web pages as well as learn about electronics.
