Founder and ED. An edutech enthusiast with passion for robotics and coding training for kids.
Having conceived the idea of establishing an innovation hub for the children and youth in Cape Town since 2015. And, observing the rapid pace of technological changes around her, and witnessing first hand the positive impact of robotics and coding training on kids through her own children who started exploring the adventurous world of coding at a young age.
It became evident from then on that the existing gab between access to innovative learning opportunities and the inborn talent of every kid must be bridged. With extensive experience in business administration and management, Emma's vision is to foster a learning environment that ignites growing minds in the field of coding and robotics.
