FG Partners Coderina to Introduce Robotics, Coding to Schools Across Nigeria

* FME sets up Ministerial Committee to execute project

 

IT NEWS NIGERIA:

 

The Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Education (FMoE) has set up a ministerial committee to work with Coderina Education and Technology Foundation on a pilot to introduce robotics, coding and project based learning to all Federal Government schools across the country.

 

Already, a number of schools have been selected from across Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones in a bid to ensure that the program can be scaled up along these geopolitical zones.

 

Teachers from the selected schools converged in Abuja on the 8th November  for a 2-day hands on experiential training.

 

According to the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, Arc, Sonny Echono S.T. fnia, “As we are all aware, ICT has become the driver of competitiveness in the world today. It has redefined efficiency and productivity, and changed the dynamics of the world of work. Coderina is well known in Africa for the advancement of computer science  and STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education. There is therefore, no doubt that our partnership will bring great improvements to the education sector and Nigeria as a whole”.

 

Speaking about the programme,  Coderina’s Relationships and Engagement Director Mr. Akinniyi Obaide said that the teachers have been provided with resources to train students, form teams and bring the teams from the federal government schools to join others in the annual SAP FIRST LEGO League event.

 

“This unprecedented move by the Federal Ministry of Education  underpins a commitment to substantial change within the education sector by the Honourable Minister, Adamu Adamu.
