The Gap Youth and Community Centre has just completed our pilot project of CodeGap – a youth project teaching young people the technical skills of coding and developing their own Front-end webpages. The pilot program, funded by the Northern Territory Government, which enabled 5 young people to attend daily sessions through the April 2021 school holidays.
The pilot project was highly successful with the young people learning HTML and CSS coding languages, and each of the young people developing their own Front-end web pages. Our developer, EJ Bollie, was so impressed with the ability of the young people to pick up the languages and skills in such a short time; the pilot was just 10 hours in total, 2 hours per day over the 5 day school holiday period. The young people involved were between the ages of 8 to 10 years old from a different cultural backgrounds. So the potential of these young people in Alice Springs is even more impressive.
