Computer coding is one of the most important digital skills to have in today’s hi-tech world. Combine this with the fact that schools are starting to implement a Digital Curriculum and it means coding is now part of modern learning.Whether your daughter or son is interested in computer coding or you just want to give them a head start in their studies, is new to coding or has some experience, Code Champions is for you.
Computer coding is complex. From multiple languages to multiple uses, there is no single way to code … so we don’t believe there is any single way to teach coding. Our aim is to introduce and expose students to some of the basic principles of programming. We don’t teach any one language or program but draw on a number to illustrate and practise coding techniques.Our Facilitator work to help you understand the computational thinking and processes involved, and give them the confidence to tackle and solve the coding challenges they face. We also encourage students to continue their exploration away from the class, whether working on things we’ve given them or their own coding projects.
What the project is all about?
The aim of the project are to provide opportunity for youth to showcase coding skills through a competition and the empowerment thereof. A 3 day training bootcamp will be held, whereby the 4th day candidates will undertake a microsoft international exam which will identify winners for the championship. The MTA (Microsoft Technology Associate) Championship will be the first of its kind in South Africa and Africa.
Conducting IT competitions and championships has shown over the years the dexterity of youth, especially in digital skills and problem-solving skills. Renowned championships globally has been conducted by Microsoft and Certiport in USA where various countries participated in programmes. These championships has been conducted under the Microsoft Certification which is recognized globally.
