Applications Now Open!

W.TEC is now accepting applications for the 2019 She Creates and the Early Innovators, Technology Camps, taking place in Lagos , Kwara and Anambra States in  July-September.

The She CreatesCamp is a two-week technology programme, which empowers girls to contribute meaningfully to the digital economy and improve their economic opportunities. The long-term goal of the camp is to increase the number of women working with and using information technology productively for professional and leadership activities.

The Early Innovators Camp harnesses the innate curiosity of children aged 5 to 10 years by introducing them to computing and science concepts through play and exploration over a 2-week camp.

Our 2019 sponsors for our camps are Oracle, Laureates College, MainOne, Swift Networks, Sage Foundation, Kenneth Dike Memorial eLibrary.

During the camp, girls will participate in technology workshops and leadership activities. Evaluations of previous camps show enhanced leadership skills; creativity; problem-solving and communication abilities in the girls as a result of attending the camp.
