Mr. Edward Chow Worn's Grade 9 Individuals & Societies students have been studying women's empowerment & poverty reduction projects in class. To help students gain a broader perspective of the work people in their community are doing to help with these initiatives, they have had guest speakers come to class to share their expertise. Last week they learned about small grants programs & a wide range of small grants projects in Zambia. Recently they were fortunate to have Mr. Daniel Bevington from the Hacker's Guild of Lusaka come to talk about coding boot camps for girls, boys, and some mixed teams. Mr. Bevington showed students the Raspberry Pi computers he uses to help teach coding. Mr. Bevington said that his goal is "to help create a pipeline for Zambia's hidden talent." The training camps are held during Zambian school holidays to make it easier for students to attend. This week Mr. Chow Worn & Ms. Maguire brought the students to the Hacker's Guild in Woodlands to ask questions of the programmers, developers, and students who were there. Our students also had a great time learning to fly drones! We are always deeply grateful to the adults in our community who give so generously of their time and expertise!
