Empower Your Child with Coding Skills; Building the Innovators of Tomorrow

The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the way we interact with technology and shaping the future in remarkable ways. It connects everyday objects to the internet, allowing them to communicate and share data, leading to enhanced efficiency, automation, and improved decision-making. For children, learning about IoT is essential as it equips them with a foundational understanding of the technology driving the digital world. By grasping IoT concepts and coding skills at an early age, children develop the ability to innovate, problem-solve, and contribute to the ever-evolving technological landscape. Coding Comrades by Bootup is a program that cultivates this in kids at any age, exclusively offered in Middle Eastern and African regions.

Unlocking the World of IoT and Coding

Coding Comrades takes an immersive and learner-centered approach to foster creativity, problem-solving skills, and a deep understanding of IoT and coding concepts. The curriculum is thoughtfully designed to be age-appropriate, engaging, and aligned with the cultural context and educational needs of the MEA region. By introducing children to IoT at an early age, they gain valuable insights into the rapidly evolving world of technology and develop essential skills for the future.

An Exciting Learning Journey

The program spans 10 weeks and is divided into modules that progressively introduce IoT and coding concepts. Students participate in practical activities through BootUp Learning Labs, supplemented by interactive live sessions with experienced instructors. Female IT teachers were specifically chosen and trained to ensure inclusivity in the course design. The curriculum includes real-world case studies relevant to the MEA region, empowering students to think innovatively and create practical solutions for issues like environmental monitoring and sustainable energy.

MagicBit offers hand-on exploration

One of the highlights of Coding Comrades is the inclusion of Magicbit, a physical modular kit that provides hands-on learning experiences. Each student receives a MagicBit microcontroller, sensors, and other hardware components to interact with, coupled with an easy-to-learn programming language. This tangible approach allows children to experiment, explore, and apply their knowledge in a practical manner. Additionally, a working sheet featuring Bitbot enables storytelling to make the learning experience even more engaging and interactive.

Supportive Learning Environment

Facilitative instructors play a crucial role in the program, guiding students, facilitating discussions, and offering personalized support. Students have access to a dedicated learning site that provides additional resources, interactive lessons, and collaborative spaces to encourage peer learning and exploration. Interactive sessions are thoughtfully structured with icebreakers, centering activities, exit tickets, and post-activities to enhance student engagement and understanding.

Impacting Lives and Inspiring Futures

Coding Comrades has received praise from students across the MEA region. These testimonies reflect the program’s success in igniting a passion for coding and opening doors to exciting future opportunities for young learners.
