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 with focus on young girls to the new and fast growing technology of coding and robotics to achieve the 14th SDG goal which is digital skill awareness. Therefore creating a platform with focus on the girl child and youths to meet, learn, be exposed to new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts and Mathematics) , digital skills trends and also have fun while at it. At soparkids we teach children the fundamentals of Coding, Engineering, Mathematics, The Arts, Science and Technology. We also develop Software’s and Mobile apps. And We train youths in aqcuiring digital skills empower them to 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..
For our instructors, this isn’t just a job – it’s their opportunity to make a contribution to the world by making a positive difference in kids’ lives.
