University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee: From the other side of the world, girl in Kenya learns computer coding at UWM

University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee: From the other side of the world, girl in Kenya learns computer coding at UWM. “‘I use the computer for school, and I wanted to understand more about how they work,’ said Elsie Maingi, who is 10 years old and lives in Nairobi. However, computer classes in Kenya were geared to high school students and business people and were usually quite expensive, said her mother, Lilian Wangechi. So in the fall of 2020, they turned to Google and found the free Girls Who Code program at UWM. Because of the time difference, Elsie got up at 2 a.m. for every class during that semester and the spring 2021 semester.”
