ThinkYoung and Boeing announce that applications are now open for the 20th edition of the ThinkYoung Coding School, which will be held for the second time in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The program is scheduled to take place from July 14 to July 17,2023 offering free computer programming classes to Ethiopian students aged 9-18.
The curriculum of the ThinkYoung Coding School will cover various activities, including robotics and drone workshops facilitated by experts.
Boeing representatives will share their experiences with the participants to inspire them to pursue careers in aviation and other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
The partnership between ThinkYoung and Boeing has already positively impacted the lives of more than 1,300 young people who participated in the coding schools.
More than 60% of participants of previous editions were girls. By breaking stigmas, the program provides girls with role models, early exposure to computer science, and a supportive environment.
The ThinkYoung Coding School aims to support Ethiopia’s vision of equipping 70% of its population with essential digital skills.
By empowering young Ethiopians, the program will help them get prepared to succeed in their future careers and to contribute to the country’s technological and economic transformation.
