The University of the Western Cape’s Science Learning Centre for Africa has launched its Coding and Robotics Club. The launch takes place during National Science Week. The club aims to expose school learners to technology and to popularise science among young people.

“Coding is the process of how humans communicate with computers. Turning instructions and ideas into a language that computers understand. UWC says the club will help popularise STEM subjects – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Director of UWC’s Science Learning Centre for Africa, Josef de Beer, says their Coding and Robotics Club will help prepare learners for future careers in coding and robotics.
