It’s that time at Moringa School – Project Period! An exciting time when our students get to really apply what they’ve been learning and figure out if they actually understood what Frank taught in that early morning Android class :-).
In preparation for the next 4 weeks, we had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Bitange Ndemo (Ex – Permanent Secretary for the ICT ministry) for a talk about opportunity recognition. We are always taken aback by and grateful for the insights he has to offer and his passion to empower the next generation of tech talent.
Moringa school has partnered with Nairobi Design week to host a women in tech workshop for women interested in learning what web design is, what good web design entails and how to be good at it. The workshop will be held at our school on Friday, November 20th from 1 PM-4 PM.
As part of our “Life in a day series” we are highlighting the life at Moringa School through the eyes applicants who successfully joined us. We are excited to let you know what happens in the everyday life of complete beginners on their journey to becoming world-class developers.

As a result, I concluded that Mr. Ndemo was coming to talk to us mainly about cyber security.Read More »
He arrived earlier than expected – that doesn’t happen often.
The whole of the Moringa fraternity was present and eager. After a quick introduction he delved into what we’d all been waiting for.
