The annual SABC African Education Week, now in it’s 9th year, was held on 1-2 July 2015 at Gallagher Convention Center. The two-day long event aims to highlight the new developments and innovation in the South African Education sector. The event exhibited cutting–edge education technology innovations; provided numerous lectures to educators; provided a platform for educators to view the latest technology on offer for their classrooms and also enabled them to connect to industry leaders who are pioneering change through relationships with the public sector.
Girls Invent Tomorrow, in partnership with Intel South Africa, hosted a coding workshop for Grade 10 – 12 girl learners, from Kensington secondary school, Mahlasedi high school and College Focus school. The workshop was facilitated by Girl Rising SA ambassador and Raeketsetsa co-founder, Hlulani Baloyi, who guided the learners throughout the sessions. As part of a series of workshops under the Intel She Will Connect program, the coding workshop aimed to empower the girls by showing them how to best navigate the web whilst teaching them the basics of coding.
