One million code girls

We had a wonderful time at Mt.Olive College girls school Kakiri at the launch of one million code girls by Google development group Makerere university business school in partnership with MUBs IT center.

We connected with young girls in s3 and s5 learning scratch and soon HTML, java and java script in the Google development programs. We encouraged them to learn life skills and engage in science, mathematics and technology in order to solve the issues posed in their communities especially in Africa.

Most of the girls were so excited about the training and they hope to design future programs and also share what they learned with their parents and other kids in their ICT clubs. Other said they will make cartoons for their siblings.
