Offer: W.TEC Girls Technology Camp, Lagos-Nigeria

Now in its 4th year, the W.TEC Girls Technology Camp is an initiative aimed at helping girls develop an early interest in computers and other information technology. The long-term goal is to increase the numbers of women working with and using information technology productively for professional and leadership activities.

This educational camp will take place on August 5 - 13, 2011 and is targeted at girls in JSS 2 to SS2. For one week, the young women will live together and participate in technology workshops and leadership activities.

Evaluations of previous camps indicate enhanced leadership skills; creativity; and problem-solving and communication abilities in the girls as a result of attending the camp. It affords girls a firsthand experience in cutting edge technology.

The fee for the 4th W.TEC Girls Technology Camp is N50, 000 (this includes registration, course materials, tuition, feeding and boarding fees). Scholarships and fee waivers are also available, so we strongly urge all qualified young women to apply.

Who qualifies to apply?
o Female students currently in JSS 2 to SSS 2 and no younger than 11 years of age
o Must have an excellent academic record
o Interested in learning about computers and other information technology
