Teaching Girls to Code
Since the start of term 3, SkillUp has been teaching more than 300 girls from grades 3 to 6 at Rustenburg Girls' Junior School how to code.
The girls have been highly-engaged while learning to build their own websites using HTML and CSS, a foundational start to their coding journey.
Using our Teaching Kids to Code software, our team of expert tutors have been teaching these young woman to build their own websites. Each week, the girls have been building a website based on a variety of topics including: South Africa, Our Solar System, Geography, Finance, and, most recently, their own Wikipedia page on Famous Women in History.
It has been inspiring to see how much these 8 to 12 year-olds have learnt in the last two months.
