Manu Sekar’s venture HashhHackCode is creating an alternative inclusive ecosystem that recognises and builds the potential of people with different abilities to learn coding, digital expression and computational thinking, “We aim to create an alternative education system that will help differently-abled individuals build a skill set that is essential for this digital era.
HashHackCode provides inclusive tech education and mentorship to all individuals regardless of background, abilities, gender, or age to learn computer programming and create opportunities for them in tech. We mentor students with ASD, ADHD/ADD, Dyslexia, Down Syndrome, hard of hearing, non-verbal, and learning difficulties,” says Manu Sekar. The team identifies the potential of each individual and groom their skills accordingly.
“We wanted to mold skilled individuals who can be valued for the work they do. Every student has a different learning style.
At HashHackCode, we embrace our student’s individuality and the unique way each one learns. Our programs include new ways of learning and collaboration with digital tools and applications that help students to develop greater creativity and social skills. We have developed a new curriculum called Creative Coding, which is divided into various stages.
Through our personalised coding education, we cultivate logical and creative thinking skills, build the foundation for computational thinking, ability to analyse and interpret data and upskill to work independently,” he adds.
