SOPARKIDS (School of Programming and Robotics for Kids) is an initiative borne out of the need to bridge the gap in computer science education to introduce African children and young girls to the new and fast growing technology of coding and robotics and also trying to achieve the 14th SDG goal which is digital skill awareness. Therefore creating a platform for children, girls and youths to meet, learn, be exposed to new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) , digital skills trends and also have fun while at it. At soparkids we teach children and young girls the fundamentals of coding, engineering, mathematics, science and technology. We also develop software’s and mobile apps. And We train youths in aqcuiring digital skills empower them and improve their business. As with any acquisition of special skills—foreign languages, musical instruments, sports—we believe that the best coders start at an early age boys or girls. Teaching young people to code and use digital skills transforms them from passive users to technological innovators. We believe that every African child can code once they have been given an awareness and opportunity to do so..
