IT Enthusiasts Form Coding Academy In Ethiopia

In an attempt to popularize coding culture in Ethiopia, young IT enthusiasts have teamed up to launch an academy that will cater to children at early ages.

Founders of iCog Labs, a startup IT business that specializes in the Artificial Intelligence, met up with Bethelhem Dessie, project manager and founder of Anyone Can Code (ACC), and brainstormed the establishment of the coding academy in Ethiopia.

Launching the academy on Thursday, Getnet Assefa, Co founder and CEO of iCog Labs, and Bethlehem said that the academy targets children aged between six and 13 and will give the opportunity to become coders at early ages. The age group is selected because that certain age is where children are expected to be more intuitively active for computing.

 

Situated in the International leadership Institute, the new academy is open to accept 30 children that will be trained in year-long coding courses. According to the founders, the academy will provide trainings on areas of robotics and artificial intelligence, coding and programming and the like.
