ABOUT US

kia (Kids Innovate Africa) is an edutech organisation established in 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa.  We offer introduction to the field of Computer Science and Engineering through Robotics and Coding to 5 - 16-year-olds.  Our objective is to get as many kids as possible excited by technology, to encourage them to spend less time in consumption mode timesinking their precious time playing video games and the likes. We aim to support kids to develop 21st Century Skills of Collaboration and Critical Thinking through our Structured Play'.  Our goal is to support parents and school management in laying the foundation for African children to potentially become future key participants in an increasingly digitalized global economy.

 

Our team is made up of experienced coding and robotics instructors who enjoy working with young people and creating an inclusive learning environment.  We pride ourselves in being professional, punctual, open communicators, kind, and authentic.  We advocate these values with our students.

 

We support groups of homeschoolers conveniently from their homes, schools with their after-school clubs and short-term digital literacy projects, and parents with weekend or holiday workshops.  We deliver your child's learning in a fun and intelligence-igniting way  - bringing your child a step closer to reaching their dreams! We also support organizations and schools to introduce robotics and coding to their students, through our Train-the-Trainer program.
