Math Challenge 2016 Finals

The Math Challenge 2016 happened last week Saturday. I feel blessed and grateful to be a part of it. The Math Challenge was started with the individual examinations by the kids. The kids you see above are the winners of that challenge.

As an invigilator, it was a trip down memory lane for me. I wondered how years from now those kids would think about the day the same way I have memories of my teachers from primary school.

When the examinations ended, it was time for a break. During the break, we had to clear the tables for the team challenge. Once break ended, it was time for the group challenge. Teams were created and team guides were assigned to the various teams.

All in all, it was a fun event. Check out the pictures from our album on Facebook.

Teaching App Inventor to Kids

At work, its been really busy. With the start of a new year, we decided to teach mobile application development to kids ages 7 and above.

That decision led to me doing the edx App Inventor course last year. This year, I have developed a learning curriculum to teach the kids mobile computing. The lesson plans have been completed and our portfolio site is up. Some material from Mobile CSP was used in creating the curriculum so I dare say that I have done my homework.

I wish I could say I wasn’t nervous about tomorrow but it would be a lie. My experience in teaching kids has made me acknowledge the fact that kids have a way of throwing out the plan. So whilst I am confident of the content that I have spent time developing, somewhere at the back of my head is the knowledge that I might have to adapt my curriculum to the needs of the class.

Have a great weekend and see you next week.
