SCRATCH (scratch.mit.edu/) is a block-based visual programming language, helping young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively – essential skills for life in the 21st century.
AFRICA CODE WEEK (www.africacodeweek.org/) is a continent-wide initiative to promote coding (computer programming) to youth using freely available software. Now in its fifth year we are encouraging Western Cape teachers to continue to engage in this historical initiative by registering to take part in the free “Train the Trainer” workshops. Participating teachers will be given free resources, refreshments and a Certificate of Attendance.
