WE ARE CURRENTLY RUNNING THREE AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMMES. COMPUTER EXPLORES IS ONE OF THEM.
DESCRIPTION
Computer Explorers is a weekly computational thinking programme targeting grade 4-7 learners. Using resources and curriculum designed by Computer Science for All in SF, this programme familiarizes children with cognitive skills used in computer science as well as with the basic concepts of coding and programming.
AIM
Most jobs currently require some level of digital skills, but it is predicted that 5,7 million jobs in South Africa will be digitally automated within the next 10 years. By 2030, robot automaton will fill approximately 800-million employment positions globally. Fifteen years from now, two-thirds of today’s five-year-olds will find themselves in jobs that don’t exist today, while the jobs that do exist won’t necessarily be located where the job seekers live.

South Africans already have unequal access to education and technology and the fourth industrial revolution is only worsening this inequality. Private schools have been ahead of the government in teaching tech-focused skills and, although the government is now introducing subjects like coding and computational thinking, rolling these out in underprivileged schools will be challenging and take time.

The Computers Explorers programme aims to address educational inequality by offering a computational thinking programme to Grade 4 – 7 learners in Dunoon.
