Eko-Konnect Adopt a Bot Girls in ICT programme

In Lagos, Nigeria, Eko-Konnect Research & Education Initiative (A consortium of Higher Education Institutions in Lagos) will host its second edition of International Girls in ICT Day at the department of Computer Science, University of Lagos.

This year’s theme is Robotics for Computer Science and Engineering Education aimed at inspiring girls (and their teachers) in secondary schools and female students in higher education institutions to take up computer programming by learning to write code to manipulate robots. The programme is based on the “Computer Education For Girls Using Robotics” concept and the ‘Eko-Konnect Adopt a Bot’ programme.

Eko-Konnect will also officially launch its ‘Girls in ICT Club’ at this year’s event. The Girls in ICT Club aims to prepare girls and young women for a career in ICT and provide opportunity for girls to learn the fundamental skills they need to be competitive in an increasingly technological world. 

Eko-Konnect seeks support through sponsorship of the ICT for Girls event and Adopt a Bot
