Today, we are in the most advanced moment in human history and this generation is the smartest that have ever lived. The future of the world is driving towards new technologies, design thinking and entrepreneurship and in all its forms. One strategic way for us to prepare the current and next generation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution is by investing in the education of our children on vital upcoming world trends that concerns their future.
Today, however, we live in an exponentially changing world in which success demands creativity and innovation. As students strive to enter careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), blockchain technology could very well represent one of the biggest emerging fields by the time they are transitioning through pre-school, elementary school, middle school, high school and universities.
To that effect, the Cameroon Blockchain Business Council (CBBC) has for the first time in Africa developed a community program called the NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK (NKOTB) program which is Blockchain awareness and education program for youths, schools and educational platforms to introduce the technology to the current and next generation of youths. Our focus is to reach out to to to 500 kids with 60% being girls.
The 2nd Edition of the New Kids on the Block BOOTCAMP SCHOOL TOUR 2019 runs from 12th – 24th August 2019 under the theme; ” Let’s Prepare GREAT LEADERS, GREAT THINKERS, GREAT INNOVATORS.”.
