Why Teach Code?

As we strive towards an economy in which technology is leveraged to enhance the lives and promote the livelihoods of Lagos State residents, it is important to prepare our citizenry to meet new workforce demands, harness the benefits of technology, and communicate in the language of the future.
We're positioning students in Lagos State to:

  • Harness, create, and leverage on local & global opportunities
  • Meet the growing demand for tech skills
  • Approach the world of work as problem solvers

Beyond Coding...

Learning to code unlocks a variety of other capabilities, including:

  • Logical reasoning
