Coders At American Spaces Virtual Launch
In November 2020, Coders at American spaces project was launched virtually on Zoom. During the launch Devin Glick, assistant cultural affairs Officer U.S embassy, advised the youth in attendance to leverage on technology skills to develop innovation using technology. The goal of the virtual launch was to equip the youth aged 18-35 years with more information about Coders at American Spaces Kenya objectives. The participants had an opportunity to inquire more about the program during the Q&A session. Watch the video of the launch below:
Pwani Teknowgalz started coding sessions with youth from Nairobi, Nakuru, Lamu and Mombasa in December 2020. The youth learnt website development language(HTML, CSS and Bootstrap). Due to Covid-19, we opted to start the program virtually through Zoom and broadcast the session live on Pwani Teknowgalz Facebook page. Here is a playlist of videos of sessions at American Spaces Kenya that is Lamu, Mombasa, Nakuru and Nairobi: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQe0TYhGWeTsMzLoVs3fZdw/playlists . We have created focused WhatsApp groups for the four regions to support the youth during and after the training.
