DreamOval Foundation announces Junior Academy 2018.

digital , 07-05-2018

Last year, Dreamoval Foundation held the 2017 edition of Junior Academy. Junior Academy serves as a training module for children between the ages of 8 and 17 years. The goal of the Academy is to teach children to become innovative, creative and great technologists.  The Academy continuously achieves this goal by teaching participants the basic elements of code using a number of related activities.

Students from last year were nicknamed ‘Acers’ by the organisers. According to them, the coined name refers to an individual who aces or excels at anything handed over to them. The organisers said all sixteen students lived up to their batch name.

Junior Academy runs for eight Saturdays during the long vacation for students. During the Saturdays, students are taught three coding languages: HTML, CSS and Javascript. Participants are also given a project to work on and submit by the end of the 8-Saturday course.

DreamOval Foundation believes in leading the way for the technology revolution the world is currently facing. The foundation’s aim is to bridge the knowledge gap through the creation, sharing and utilization of knowledge with education and technology.

Speaking on the outcome of last year’s Junior Academy, Mina Asabea, programmes coordinator of the foundation had this to say:

Junior Academy was a learning experience for everybody last year; organisers, teachers, students and volunteers. We each learnt to code in our own small way and created memories of doing it in a fun way. This year’s package for Junior Academy promises to be more exciting. I will encourage parents with children to sign up their wards between the ages of 8 to 17 years, This is is an experience no child or teenager should miss out on.”

Registration for this year’s Junior Academy is currently in progress. Call 030 341 1045/ 0264 591476 for more details.
