2016 has kicked off into a bright start for us here at the Vortex, from the event partnership with COCA-COLA for Vocation arts day at Dowen College to expansion of the Vortex Academy sessions to Dowen College & Grange School, the dream has been getting bigger for us and we would love to reach out to all our partners and friends with a big thank you.
On 12th of February, we took our maiden Vortex Academy class to Microsoft Nigeria HQ for our first partnered session where we used intriguing animation (of Vortex Characters) and games designed by Microsoft to teach the young guru’s coding, this experience was so fulfilling as we felt for the first time in a long time we had joined a movement that would really change the lives of young children.
Here are captioned images of how the day went down.
