Youth computer programming by HBH's Frank in Tanzania

Frank Puts Computer Programming into Practice

HBH would like to share a special project recently completed by Frank. Frank has chosen to pursue computer programming as part of his optional academic modules, and has written a report about constructing a functioning measuring kit:

This kit measures distance from the ultrasonic sensor to the object or any obstacle which is in front of it (ultrasonic sensor). It took me about three weeks in assembling all the parts and testing the codes for correctness and debugging all the errors. It took much time because it was the first time I was involved in coding and all the different connections necessary to build the kit. It is applicable when you want to prepare your small garden at your home which it is two meters (2m) long because the sensor’s maximum length measurement is two meters (2m). It is made up of ultrasonic sensor, arduino UNO, jumper wires, blade board and the LCD.

I enjoy programming and am learning C++ and JAVA to start, as I believe will make a lot of development in my country.
HBH is keen to support any interest the HBH kids show in learning to code and help prepare them for careers in computer programming and tech development.
HBH would like to thank JAW Sustainability, a sustainability consultancy firm in London, UK, for generously donating the laptop Frank uses to learn and practice his coding skills. Asante sana.
