OUR PROGRAMS

  • The Phoenix Program

The phoenix project is an after school program in partnership with iSpace Foundation Ghana. This project was initiated in summer 2016 and is designed to help kids especially girls see technology in a whole new light as a medium for self-expression, and as a means for changing the world. Each curriculum for the phoenix project is creative and fun giving kids the opportunity to create digital contents such as websites, games, animations and interactive stories. 2017 promise to be fun as the phoenix kids will take field trips, visiting technology companies to learn more about careers in tech. Programs cover a variety of topics from programming languages like HTML & CSS and javascript, to image editing and blog creation, to 3D printing to hardware hacking with arduinos and more.

  • Teacher Training

Ghana Code Club builds a community of volunteers who share their passion for digital making with children and teachers across Ghana. We offer training and resources for primary school teachers. Our objective towards this program is for teachers to feel confident in teaching and supervising students at the various code clubs. Our modules for the teacher training includes computational thinking, programming and internet and the web. Our trainers are industry experts who are passionate about computing and education and have a flexible booking system.

  • Code Club in Schools, Libraries and community centers

At Ghana Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from. To do this, we leverage on network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs children aged 9-11 to build and share their ideas, learning along the way. The Code Clubs meet during school's extra curriculum sessions or after school sessions for an hour per week. Our projects are easy to follow step-by-step guides which help children learn Scratch, HTML & CSS and Python by making games, animations, and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow children to build their knowledge incrementally, meaning there’s also no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert.

  • i READ AND I CODE

This is a creative computing program designed to support our little programmers between the ages of 6-8 years to read, narrate and create their characters to come live with code. These programs are beginner-friendly, hands-on and fun, and an excellent initiative that is churning little children into the world of programming happening every weekend at various centers across churches, libraries and other community centers in Ghana. We maintain a balance of 7:1 ratio of kids to mentors with balanced numbers of male and female mentors.
