The Women’s Technology Empowerment CentreW.TEC is now accepting applications for its 6th Girls Technology Camp, which is scheduled to take place in August.  The W.TEC Girls Technology Camp is a technology education and mentoring programme designed to inspire girls to become more confident in creating digital content and developing technology. For the camp duration, the girls will participate in technology workshops to design graphics, make film, build applications and games. They will also participate in career talk sessions, team-building exercises and excursions.

The camp is open to secondary school students (JSS 2 – SSS 2) who are no younger than 11 years old. This residential, educational camp will take place from August 11th-24th, 2013 and is targeted at girls in secondary schools who are comfortable using the computer and who would like to take their interest in computers & technology to the next level. It is a two-week program with practical technology workshops including: Introduction to Programming, Building Applications, Introduction To Telecoms, Video Filming and Production, Building Computer Games, Career Talks, Excursions to Technology Companies.

On successful completion of the camp, the girls will be invited to join W.TEC’s Technology Club for Girls, where they will be able to participate in year-long workshops to build-up their technology skills from the camp. They will also have the opportunity to win a laptop.

W.TEC is a Nigerian non-governmental organization working to encourage Nigerian girls and women to use information and communication technology (ICT) to empower themselves socially and economically. This is done through technology literacy training, technology-based projects, mentoring, work placement and research.

    Well, I just saw the cost. This is kinda expensive o, if the idea is for girls to be exposed to tech and blah blah… yea, it’s steep. You’re still doing a good job sha, but if it could be cheaper and accessible to more girls, better
