Participants learned how to code and use app builders to create their own apps and other digital courses.

Participants’ Feedback/Testimonials

The kids and their parents were very excited and overjoyed about the outcome and what they were able to do, their parents were even happier as they watched their ward(s) during the presentation. Here are a few testimonials:

  • “I am overjoyed about how much my son was able to learn and I look forward to registering him next year” – Mrs. Helen

  • “I am very impressed with my child’s performance. I have gotten him a laptop as a present to help him practice all that was being taught” – Mr. Eze

  • “The value gotten was more than the cost price of the program, and I’m willing to pay more next time, knowing my child would certainly get more value” – Mrs. Favour.

Another parent said that he was really impressed at the attention given to the children and said he is sure it’s one of the reasons they were able to learn so much in a space of three weeks.

I will like to thank iKapture for this wonderful program that they put together, for the past few weeks while I was a part of this training, we have been taught many topics and skills, and some of these include time management, web design, critical thinking stimulation, and Robotics and Drone making and they were the highlight for me. Thanks to this program and the facilitators, my passion for computer and software have once again been re-ignited. – Nnamdi Okorie. YLEAD Class of 2021

From the past few weeks, I have learned a lot from the program, the facilitators, and even my co-participants.

I learned the importance of setting smart goals to be a 21st Century Youth. – Priscilla Williams. YLEAD Class of 2021
