Project Overview

To add value to lives by creating an environment where youngsters can become innovators and users of ICT tools. iii. To help youths associate skills with wealth creation and how best to drivetheir initiatives to the world. Innovative Approaches: HiTech Box is an after-school project where boys and girls between the ages of 11 - 17, in secondary schools, can learn Computer Science and other ICTs in practical. The project is going to be basically hands-on as most schools in Nigeria especially in rural communities tend to teach a lot of theories in classrooms. - The students will have the opportunity of seeing, using and creating technologies they can associate with daily living e.g. computer basics - Desktop appreciation, GSM-mobile application and technology, web-based applications, animation programming - robotics, photography, graphics, video production e.t.c. - They will think out solutions to problems plaguing their community, and how technology can be used to solve these problems. - They will be taught to be actively involved in their communities using ICTs digital advocacy. Activities: Being a practical project, parents and schools will be encouraged to enrol students in the after-school project since they are not provided with such resources to run the needed curriculum in the schools. - The students will be started with CS unplugged curriculum where they will be introduced to computing without computers for starters. - For the next stage of learning, an elearning approach is employed. They will be taught using ICT tools. - The third stage of the project is to teach how the skills learnt can be translated into entrepreneurial skills. This project will not only create innovators but entrepreneurs for the society.
