From 30 people 11 languages to the IT crowd.
At our camp we set up the IT crowd club. The aim of the club is for our camp students who are interested in IT to have more time to focus on what they are interested in.
In the beginning only 3 students but later more are signed up. We found out they were shy in the beginning, thinking they're not good in IT. Some of them never even used computers before!
What we do in our IT club.
I first asked them why they want to join the club and what they want to learn.
The girls would like to improve office program skills and using the internet. On the other hand the boys liked programming, to make their own websites and setting up an online radio station!
One of the boys was interested in Robotics but my knowledge about robotic is limited 🙁 Luckily we found a book about DIY electronics and robotics. Over night two robots were made :). One robot called the Love Prediction robot became very popular among the girls! The other robot is Robot Sensors. More later.
I'm really glad to see our students enjoy their IT crowd club. IT is a good way to motivate them to learn more and hopefully they can use their new IT skills to learn by themselves, not only about IT but about other subjects too. Stay tuned for more updates!
