The Federal Ministry of Communications, Innovation and Digital Economy has called for host organisations interested in partnering to activate Code Clubs in its 17 Digital Knowledge Exchange Centres spread across Nigeria.
Code Club, an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Communications, Innovation & Digital Economy in partnership with Raspberry Pi Foundation, is targeted at enabling young Nigerians aged 7 to 17 years to learn a broad spectrum of coding and technology related subjects.
According to the ministry, this will be a significant step in the Federal Government’s journey to build a pipeline of young digital literates and innovators.
In a statement on its official website, the ministry said the available Knowledge Exchange Centres will serve as original prototypes as the Government puts in motion its plan to expand the initiative to more locations nationwide.
“The Federal Ministry will give host organisations access to the Centres with a view to putting it to good use for the benefit of local communities,” the statement read.
To this effect, the ministry has urged organisations with a track record in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths (STEAM) training to express their interest using the link provided here: https://codeclub.fmcide.gov.ng/
