KidsZone Summer of Code: And It’s A Wrap!

4 weeks, 30 kids, 6 groups and 1 demo day; like all good things, the KidsZone Summer of Code program has come to an end. The culmination was Saturday the 16th, as kids got ready to demo their projects to parents and invited guests.


The demo day applications were not short in variety, as demos ranged from fun Scratch games and animations, interactive Python programs as well as some math-based Python applications. Parents had the opportunity not only to see what their kids had been working on over the summer, but could also view what other kids had been working on and interact with other parents.


Vice-President of Sales and Country Manager for Rancard Nigeria, Mr. Olusegun Adeniyi, was also present to hand Raspberry Pi starter kits to each of the 10 recipients of the Rancard scholarship. The kits would ensure that the kids possessed the necessary tools to continue to use and enhance the skills they acquired over the summer.


The last 4 weeks have been amazing to say the least; and was undoubtedly, a summer well spent.
