Almond Careers Brings Micro:bit to Nigeria
The fun way to learn how to code
The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized codeable computer, designed to encourage young students to get creative with technology.
Almond Careers focuses on delivering training with practical work experience across Nigeria. Training Activities spans from the working class, recent graduates to junior secondary schools helping deliver hands on practical training and not just the theory. The micro:bit project fits perfectly into one of Almond Careers strategic goals – to get technology into schools. Almond Careers has started the work of integrating the micro:bit into the education system in Nigeria.
As Nigeria embraces the digital age, it is important that the younger generation are taught to see the value of technology so that in the coming years they can contribute to the next generation of leading global developers. We believe the micro:bit can inspire digital creativity and develop the future of tech pioneers emerging from Nigeria.
The micro:bit foundation is working with Angel’s Children Organization and Almond Careers Limited to bring the micro:bit to Nigeria.
As the micro:bit is only a year old globally and does not exist in Nigeria, Almond Careers has kicked off the project that will see micro:bit integrated into the academic curriculum for secondary schools in Nigeria.
