Designed to provide students with a hands-on immersive learning experience. We want students to solve problems, and truly understand the process of how they got to their solutions following the real-world STEM process.
What We Do
Students learn how to create different computer applications including web based and mobile applications using different computer languages and we provide business and entrepreneurship training that enables them to create innovative tech solutions that solve the challenges experienced by their communities.
A weekly hands-on robotics training that involves building and programming a robot to perform a specific task following the real-world engineering process. The robotics training encourages problem-solving, engineering concepts, creative thinking and a healthy sense of competition that drives innovation to students.
We provide these emerging young tech-entrepreneurs with mentorship and incubation support that direct and assist them in launching and scaling their digital business ideas while providing them with extensive connections to numerous opportunities in the ecosystem.
Tech & Innovation Events
We organise events such as workshops, bootcamps, exhibitions, hackathons and our annual summit that enables the students to meet our large network of fellow STEM and Innovation enthusiasts across East Africa with the goal of igniting girls’ interest in Technology and creativity, learn and build innovations.
