Wondering how to occupy your kids during the school holiday? How about getting your daughter involved in a Mobile App camp? Yes! Instead of letting the kids laze around at home, I got Nicole involved in a AppJamming Camp by PayPal, and guess what… she totally loved it! After the 3 days, she even had a mobile app, that she could show off to Daddy! 🙂
As girl’s are commonly more associated with dolls, nail polish and lipstick, the AppJamming camp is here to break stereotypes. Organized by PayPal, the Girls in tech programme, is an initiative to help close the gender gap in technology. By providing tech knowledge to school girls aged from 8-14 years old, the camp is fully sponsored by PayPal, with attendees being taught how to code an Android app!
This is the first time that that the AppJamming Camp is held in Singapore, and I must say that it has been a resounding success. Nicole had great fun, and it was also an easy way for her to make new friends. I love the fact that Parents can drop off the kids at Suntec City at 9am, and pick them up again at 6pm. With such a central location, Parents can easily make work arrangements, and be assured that the kids are having a fruitful time of learning, throughout the duration of the camp.
The camp is not just about technology, as the girls will also try their hand at Latte-art and other ativities! Yes! If you are a coffee drinker, your daughter will emerge as a rookie barista after this camp, and may attempt to leave a heart-felt pattern on your morning cuppa. They will also be inspired to one day join the ranks of a tech company, as they get to tour the PayPal office and meet PayPal’s women tech leaders.
PayPal will be having a second run of the AppJamming Camp from 22-24 June, and we all offering 1 Reader, a chance to Win a coveted spot at this App Camp. (Do take note, that this camp is for Girls only, and it is not a stay-in camp!) Girls should be from the ages of 8-14yo.
