Strathmore’s @iLabAfrica Holiday Boot Camp Nurtures Young Creative Ideas to Life

Strathmore University’s @iLabAfrica Research Centre organized a 10-day Holiday Boot Camp from 10th-21st August 2015 for primary and high school students. The camp, which was sponsored by some of @iBizAfrica’s incubatees, was designed to motivate and inspire students to bring their creative ideas to life. The sponsors namely Tatu Creatives, Elite Ways and Henga Systems were generous enough to donate prizes and thank you cards that were awarded to the students during the award ceremony that was held on 21st August 2015 at Safaricom Lab, @iLabAfrica. The award ceremony was presided over by @iLabAfrica’s Deputy Director Mr. Emmanuel Kweyu.



The boot camp gave students an opportunity to create their own games, animated stories, projects, and also publish their applications to the web. It provided a comprehensive learning experience that was fun, highly interactive and extremely effective. 



Some of the concepts the students were taught included the following;

  • Creating 3D animation
  • Designing websites
  • Learning to code
  • Making mobile applications
  • Designing video games
  • And so much more


The speakers who graced the boot camp and gave motivational talks to the students were: Frank Tamre from Moringa School, Angela Nzioki from Uhasibu, Toby Bodo from Watu Media, Njuru Mwangi of Sufuria.com, Lilian Makanga from Strathmore Law School, and finally Allan Onchuru from @iLabAfrica.



The next holiday boot camp is scheduled for 23rd November – 4th December 2015
