KTDA Foundation in partnership with Playpoint East Africa, kicked off the Robotics and Coding:- Enhancing Digital Literacy For Long-Life Learning In Tea Communities Programme yesterday at Legacy Hotel, Nakuru County.
The main aim of the programme is to improve the learning outcomes of 240 students in 12 schools within the tea growing zones through robotics and coding. Capacity building for 24 teachers is ongoing, with a target of reaching out to 240 students and later to the entire school.
KTDA Foundation and Taylor’s of Harrogate have also donated laptops and robotic kits for the programme. We envision that the students will gain skills, such as problem-solving, creativity and critical thinking to positively impact the tea catchment areas and beyond.
