Coding School by ThinkYoung and Boeing to Make Debut in Tanzania


ThinkYoung and Boeing are set to host the ThinkYoung Coding School in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, on April 20-21 and April 27-28 this year for students aged 12-17.

The ThinkYoung Coding School in Tanzania will offer free-of-charge computer programming lessons led by subject matter experts. The interactive curriculum will include a diverse range of activities, such as robotics, drones, and aviation workshops.

According to Kuljit Ghata-Aura, president of Boeing Middle East, Türkiye, Africa, and Central Asia: “The STEM programs co-organized by ThinkYoung and Boeing in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Rwanda have achieved remarkable results. We are delighted to build on this success and expand the Coding School to Tanzania and other African countries this year.”

Over the past eight years, ThinkYoung and Boeing have successfully trained over 1,400 teenagers, with 60% of participants being girls. Coding schools bridge the gap in digital skills and empower the youth to thrive in the digital economy.

Andrea Gerosa, the founder of ThinkYoung, said: “After running education programs worldwide for 14 years, it’s crucial to introduce the ThinkYoung Coding School to Tanzania. We want to ensure that the youth have the skills they need to be part of the digital economy. With Boeing’s partnership, we’re dedicated to making education more inclusive and providing equal opportunities to everyone.”
