Future Code Club inspiring teens to code and get creative with technology

Future Code Club is a nonprofit initiative dedicated to providing teens between ages 9 to 18 years access to computer programming skills through hour of code, after-school and weekend programs.

Recently a team from Future Code Club found my contact as ITAU National Coordinator and sought an appointment to meet me to discuss about how they can partner with the ICT Teachers Association of Uganda.

We met at the Sharebility Uganda office inside Makererere Innovation and Incubation Center

They told me that future Code Club is dedicated to providing teens in Primary and Secondary schools access to computer programming skills through a number of programs which can be arranged and scheduled with computer clubs in schools. They also have a program for organising Teacher Code workshops designed to help teachers teach coding fundamentals with confidence.
