In line with its annual social project, Emerald Zone, a business advisory, human capital development, and marketing communications’ company, has concluded arrangements to organise this year’s Code Zone, where interested teenagers are taught coding skills.
The coding class is set to commence on August 1, 2022. Emerald said the coding class, with options for participants to either join virtually or in-person, is targeted at primary and secondary school children, teenagers and preteens from age 10 to 18, to upskill in coding.
Speaking on the rationale for the classes, Mrs Olufunke Akinloye, a Director at Emerald and Initiator of Code Zone, said the initiative was birthed out of the need to ignite the interest of the young ones in technology, irrespective of social economic class or their subjects of studies in school.
This, according to Mrs Akinloye, will enable the children and their parents appreciate the endless possibilities the coding knowledge holds for them. “Technology is transforming the world rapidly and we are determined to empower the young ones with the requisite skills that will give them confidence to face and make great impact in the world they are growing into,” Mrs Akinloye said.
Mrs Akinloye said registration is currently on-going for interested participants. To register, simply call 08038095408 or 09060005619 or email Emerald Zone at [email protected].
Another parent, Mr. Olajoku said, “My daughter was so excited about the Code Zone last year that she has been the one reminding me that it will hold this year and she intends to be a part of it. We certainly got great value from the programme.”
