This year, 12 summer camps will hold in Lagos across several locations including Lekki, Ikeja, Ebute Metta amongst others.

Participants will learn the fundamentals of web design, animation, robotics, game design and 3D printing and 3D design as well as drones into its 2018 summer camp curriculum using tools such as Google CSFirst and a curriculum that is cutting edge.
“We need to develop a maker culture in our young ones and tilt the balance of technology consumption in favor of its production by Nigerians for Nigerians. This goal starts by giving the Nigerian child the necessary STEM education, a journey which TechQuest started in 2015” says Charles Emembolu a TechQuest co-founder.
Over the years, TechQuest has pioneered FREE coding programs for Nigerian children with its largest being the partnership with Hon Desmond Elliot in 2016 where 1000 kids were trained for FREE by TechQuest.
Being at the forefront of STEM education in Nigeria, TechQuest has identified the gap in maker skills amongst our young ones and has taken a step in lessening this gap. “As a not for profit organization, dedicated to increasing access of the less privileged to STEM education, we plan to reach 1,000,000 African children by 2020. We consider STEM education a right of every child”.
