Who says girls can’t create digital content and develop technology?

The Women’s Technology Empowerment Centre – W.TEC is now accepting applications for its 8th Girls Technology Camp!

The W.TEC Girls Technology Camp tagged “Geeky Divas – Grooming ICTpreneurs” is a technology education and mentoring programme where the girls will participate in technology workshops, career talk sessions, team-building exercises and excursions.

This residential, educational camp is targeted at girls in secondary schools who are comfortable using the computer and would also like to gain a better understanding of computers and technology.

The two-week program with practical technology workshops includes animation programming, building mobile applications to design games, build computers, graphics designing and film-making. The girls will also learn how to develop their ideas into money-making ventures as there will be seasoned financial gurus to take them through software development life cycle and financial literature sessions in the simplest form.

    This is amazing! what an awesome opportunity for our girls to get mentored and encouraged to get into an industry that is seen as a “boys” club.

    This is a really good initiative. I’m guessing it will be very intensive given it is 2 weeks
