Kids Tech & Arts Camp

In our quest to broaden young minds by giving the applied technical skills over the years, one thing has become apparent to AkiraChix. We need to embed the seeds of encouragement from a very young age. This is why we have begun running a kids outreach targeting children between the ages of 7- 14 years, exposing them to different facets of technology and sparking creativity and curiosity.

We’ve hosted one Kids Tech and art camp Camp, back in April 2014, that saw 30 students from Kibera School for Girls in attendance. By the end of the week, these students were able to come up with interesting projects built off of Scratch from MIT.

After the first camp, we took some time to reevaluate the kind of impact we would like to have with the Kid’s Program. In June 2015, we revised the plan around the Kid’s Program, targeting primary school students, and began running activities at St. George’s Primary school, which has an active Computer club of around 60 members.

The outreach program is designed very much like the high school outreach program, with weekly visits to a school, training the students on specific skillsets.

This August holiday, at the end of the second school term, AkiraChix will host our Second Tech and Arts Camp at the AkiraChix space between 10th – 14th August 2015 from 9:00 a.m – 4:00 p.m. This camp will be a one week intensive training for primary school children on how to use Scratch by MIT during morning sessions, and additionally, create Art projects using principles of Art and Design during the afternoon sessions..

The program cost is KES 10,000 per child.

To register your child to attend this bootcamp, fill out this sign up form here by 7th August 2015. Limited spaces available

    Since the kids will be there for the whole day, will your be providing a meal for them? Will we be billed separate for the meal or is it included in the KES10,000?

    Is it too late to come to this? We just saw the poster in Yaya Centre today and my 10 year old daughter is very interested. I realize she has now missed the first day but hope she may be able to join from Tuesday through Friday and get caught up. Is it still possible to enroll?
