…Day 1 and Day 2
Nigeria’s foremost online educational platform, Edufirst.ng kicked off this year’s Codefunky 2019 summer camp at Grange Schools, GRA, Ikeja on the 5th of August, 2019.
Unlike last year, Codefunky 2019, is witnessing a mixture of students (day and boarders) from different schools across Nigeria.
This year, campers expect to learn, have fun, network with other intelligent students and to get relevant skills that will be useful to them in the future and organizers in the same vein have put together contents that will make it a very memorable experience for everyone.
The much anticipated summer camp which has been described by Digital Innovation and creativity Manager of Edufirst.ng, Idris Oladipo as a “summer of learning and fun” rightly got off to a good start.
Campers got introduced to Robotics and 3D printing on the very first day after getting informed about the different programs and objectives of this year’s camp.
The following day, the kids had two mentoring sessions which were facilitated by two industry experts, Tele Williams-Aina, Project lead at Digital Republic and Ernest Eguasa, Chief Financial Officer at Jumia Nigeria.
While Tele took the kids on “The leader in you”. Ernest’s session which was on “Financial literacy” was however very practical and filled with a lot of questions as participant after participant asked questions especially bothering on savings, spending and income.
The last session for the day was a practical class on Robotics. The class was shared into groups and everyone got an opportunity to learn how to build and code a robot.
Each team thereafter worked together to create one.
The day was rounded off with games competition at the hostel.
Campers competed against one another in different games, ranging from table tennis, scrabble, monopoly, chess and Play station 4.
