Technology is causing major societal changes in the world. There are studies that raise awareness about the loss of jobs, but they also underline that fact that new ones will be created. However, in rural areas, where most of the citizens have no digital skills how can one talk of the possibility of new jobs? These citizens are bound to be left behind in this new tech society if we don't act on it. The program that we propose will consist of coding lessons for school pupils in 2 schools in rural area. They will have a chance to build a modular robot and start programing it. The lessons will be organized in the 2 schools in Mihailesti village.

Between 21 and 23 November, I participated in a robotics workshop organized by ESA, Belgium. During the workshop I participated in classroom activities, we made robots using LEGO WeDO hardware and software and used them for " a mission on Mars. "The workshop also featured Astro Pi, a Raspberry Pi computer used for programming in a space context. We have had an extraordinary experience of learning through discovery and experimentation. The Romanian team has worked with Greek and Portuguese teachers. After attending the workshop, I became more aware of the importance of studying cosmic space. I will carry out activities to promote the benefits of space and spatial education where students and teachers will learn about astronaut craft, a planetarium, an astronomical observer, and how to build its own rover.

Училищна Телерик Академия е най-мащабната безплатна ИТ инициатива за ученици от 1-ви до 12-ти клас в България. През учебната 2018-2019 г. стартираме 65 школи по дигитални науки, разработка на игри и алгоритмично програмиране в 15 града в страната: София, Пловдив, Варна, Стара Загора, Велико Търново, Плевен, Габрово, Севлиево, Враца, Разград, Кърджали, Ямбол, Ловеч, Луковит и Котел. Трите програми развиват логическото мислене и креативността на учениците, въоръжават ги с ключови за дигиталната икономика умения и ги подготвят за професиите на бъдещето. Все повече от професиите днес и за в бъдеще ще изискват дигитални умения. Независимо дали ще изберат да се занимават с програмиране или да се развиват в друга област, учениците трябва да могат да управляват дигиталните технологии и да пишат код, за да бъдат конкурентоспособни на глобалния пазар на труда.
