Excited children from schools in Johannesburg’s East Rand got the chance to showcase their coding and robotics projects, including 2D games, at a special event in Springs recently. The Let Kids Code project began in October 2021 and involved teams made up of 150 learners and 30 educators from seven primary schools and 11 secondary schools in the greater Tsakane area of Ekurhuleni. The project forms part of ORT SA’s initiative, in conjunction with Astron Energy, to take ICT and STEM skills to previously disadvantaged schools and communities through coding courses. The winning projects were: Primary School – Mega Primary for their Hospital Sensor project and Secondary School – Mbongeni Mgududu (Formerly Tsakane Ext 8 Secondary) for the game focused on Farming & Cropping.
