CODING FOR YOUTH – C4Y

The Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT (AITI-KACE) offers the most fun and effective programme for learning Scratch, Robotics, Python and other IT courses. Code live with instructors by building games, websites, animations and robots that you can share.


These courses are essential to provide the students with tools for practical and hands-on experience in the field of coding and programming. The rise of this aspect of technology has taken over everything today and has been so for a while now. Coding tends to trigger the thinking abilities and creative element in every student at the Junior and Senior High School levels.


 At GI-KACE, we believe in nurturing the hidden potentials, which children innately have. Our interactive story-based learning allows the students to learn the basics with ease and develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The courses focus on programming skills, game-based logic and creativity.

At the end of this course, students would be ready to adapt to the increasingly tech-driven world. It also sets them up for career opportunities later on in life and provides a host of soft skills benefits. It is a very promising career.  

•        Builds their resilience and boosts their creativity.
•        Engage them thoughtfully and meaningfully in the technological world.
•        Enhances their mathematical and computational skills
•        Builds their confidence in problem-solving
•        Enhances academic writing performance
•        Improves their confidence and communication skills
•        A thought-provoking platform for career prospect

Courses:

#1: SCRATCH PROGRAMMING

Programme Brief

This training is specially designed to provide a learner with visually engaging programming tool intended to teach the fundamentals of coding to kids and youth in a fun and intuitive manner. The training will employ a block-based coding mechanism that allows a learner to create animations, stories, and games without writing code.  

#2: ROBOTICS

Programme Brief

This is hands-on training is designed to provide a participant with the technology used in the programming of robots that can perform tasks and interact with their environment without the aid of human interaction with devices connecting them to the internet.

#3: GRAPHIC DESIGN

Programme Brief

This hands-on course is designed to provide a participant with the fundamental principles of graphic design such as image making, typography, composition, and working with colour and shape. It will offer a participant lots of opportunities to get h/her hands dirty with exercises and with more practical projects.

#4: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Programme Brief

Artificial intelligence involves programming machines and computers to learn, think and act. Children will be engaging in drawing up examples and real-world applications to help them understand better.

#5: ANIMATION & WEB DESIGN

Programme Brief

The dynamic medium in which images or objects are manipulated to appear as moving images is Animation. Now animation can be designed with the help of computer-generated images. Animation is a fun technique that has become much more standard for a variety of applications. This has impacted the web design industry as well, however, Web design is the knowledge gained in design (typography, colour theory) and also skills in developing a website (HTML, CSS, JavaScript). 

#6: INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT)

Programme brief

The Internet of Things course introduce the wonders of IOT, home automation among others through exciting hands-on session. The Internet Of Things, or IoT, is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with Unique Identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

Our team of ICT professionals and experienced instructors will provide a participant with tailored hands-on skills to encourage creativity and innovation abilities as well as develop a participant’s critical thinking ability.

These special coding courses are scheduled to start from August 15th  – 26th  2022, for 2 weeks at our Centre at Ridge, Accra from 9 am – 12noon.
