THE BIGGEST TECH EVENT FOR KIDS IN PORT HARCOURT – YOUNG TECHIES FESTIVAL
Port Harcourt kids were over the moon with joy and excitement on Saturday, 23rd July 2022 at the premier edition of The Young Techies Festival.
The festival is a gathering of kids between the ages of 8-17 years with the aim to expose them to latest technologies, inspire them to start a career journey in tech and connect them with other kids who are already doing amazing things in tech.
The first edition held at the Rivers State ICT Department (Tech Creek) and recorded 230 children in attendance physically and over 50 parents. The event featured games, exhibitions and first hand experiences in virtual reality.
Speaking at the event were John Oseni, Naomi Bamgbose, and Clinton Imaro, all teenage techies already doing awesome things.
The event was organised by Code Ambassadors and proudly sponsored by RIO Foundation, Techrity, BrainFriend (Cinfores), and Keep It Real (KIR) Foundation.
The good news is The Young Techies Festival has come to stay for good. The organizers, Code Ambassadors said plans are already in motion for the next year’s edition which will be bigger and better.
