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.

XXI teamwork, creativity, critical thinking and cooperation. Students will work in international teams, coordinated by volunteer teachers from the two schools.The teams will discuss the prejudices and stereotypes of the two cultures , will find common ground, and through the "game based learning" method available with the Scratch application, they will make games and small scenarios in a dynamic and playful way to train other classmates. Thus, participants will develop their cognitive and emotional side of their own personality. The coding program will keep their attention focused and stimulate their critical thinking and analysis. Collaborating in international teams will learn to cooperate effectively and respect each other, listening carefully to each opinion to make a final decision. regarding the identified prejudices and stereotypes. We want the Scratch program to bring our students closer, to collaborate and be proud to be European. Without prejudices, with collaboration and an open mind we learn online with Scratch to be digital creators!
