Geeking out in Uganda!

The staff of Hackers for Charity Uganda ran an expo at Jinja Senior Secondary School! Josh received an invitation as one of the founders of the computer club and demonstrated LittleBits, Edison, Scratch programming and Microsoft Office productivity tips. It was also cool to have other fun things to do including chess, and mancala games.

Our own “J Robotics” team worked hard the night before getting ready to show of their Vex robotics program and their preparation was well worth the effort. Parents and teachers were “simply amazed” at the speed technology has advanced, and many were wide-eyed and speechless because they had never seen these kinds of things before. Everyone left “amazed at robotics”.

The “J Robotics” team and our HFC staff really did an amazing job bringing technology awareness to the community and now many students are interested in learning about technology. This is a big deal because the computer club was very small and quiet before “J Robotics” and HFC started stirring things up.

We have big plans for “J Robotics”. Their drive and passion has inspired us and we hope to get them to the Vex Worlds Robotics championships as it’s first African participants.

Thanks for all your support. You’re making this happen!
