Coding Camp in Kaitaia

Coding Camp in Kaitaia

In August our Mobile Innovation Hub partnered with NZ company, Code Avengers, to present a coding camp for rangatahi in the Far North.

Rangatahi took the opportunity to learn an introduction to coding and building websites and games.  Ilana Signal was the facilitator from Code Avengers, who explained to rangatahi that coding is about applied problem solving through logical, critical and creative thinking.

Rangatahi worked both individually and in teams to solve challenges which helped to promote teamwork, tolerance and communication skills.  The weekend also helped to make subjects like maths relevant and fun in completely new ways and fostered literacy skills by training rangatahi to focus and pay attention to detail.
