Many rural and township schools in South Africa don’t have access to a computer facility and basic computer skills are compulsory in Education of Higher Learning as well as in society. Many of the children who complete high school with a level of achievement to study further in a field of Engineering will never have had an opportunity to do programming or have access to engineering materials in their school years thus hampering their hopes of graduating in those fields a big possibility.
