NTRC hosts 2018 myAPP Summer Programme in Bequia

The National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (NTRC) is hosting its fourth annual summer coding and application development initiative known as the myAPP Summer programme.

This year the program, which began on Monday, July 16, is taking place at the Bequia Community High School from 9 am to 3 pm daily.

The objective of the NTRC’s myAPP summer program is to teach participants between the ages of 13-18 years how to code and design mobile applications. The programme will introduce participants to ways in which they can portray their acquired skills in fora such as the NTRC’s annual i2 Competition. This year’s program will also see the introduction to the curriculum of the BBC Microbit. The microbit is a tiny (credit card size) programmable computer, designed to make learning and teaching easy and fun.

The program ends on Friday, August 10.
