Training in Zambia
Saturday / Sunday
Howard finally got Siavonga Primary School’s Windows server working with its thin clients. We helped students from Siavonga High School to prepare for a presentation they are going to do at Youth Day all about Raspberry Pi and RACHEL
Monday Youth Day
Local schools and youth organisations marched around town finishing up at the football field.
They demonstrated a range of traditional songs and dance, interspersed with drama sketches, majorettes and a brass band.
Finally, the invited guests visited some exhibitions that schools had set up. Our young friends from Siavonga High School showed how RACHEL can be accessed through a Raspberry Pi. This piqued the interest of the Zesco (Electricity) engineers who invited Howard to address a meeting of the Zambian Institute of Engineers on Saturday.
The theme of this year’s Youth Day was “Leveraging Opportunities through ICT”.
We held training at Siavonga High School for teachers interested in teaching programming and running a Code Club.
