New technologies offer endless possibilities. What humanity kept in myths and fairy tales has become a reality today with the help of technology. Humans can fly, and gadgets remind us of those magic mirrors that fairy tale characters talk to. Knowledge of technology is a way to a world of new opportunities.
The modern world, through rapidly developing technologies, offers us many new and interesting professions. Today, it is already possible to work on joint projects with people living in different parts of the world, without having to leave your hometown.
New technologies reduce distances, bring people closer, and create new opportunities even in such well-known fields as medicine, basic sciences, industry, services, etc.
Today, knowledge in technology determines the success of any field.
That is why TBC has kicked off an education program for school students, consisting of various educational activities: workshops, online courses, competitions, hackathons, and more.
In the first stage of the program, TBC offers introductory and training courses that cover various areas of technology. The number of courses and the diversity of their content will gradually increase. Educational programs are intended for 10th and 11th grade students living in any region of Georgia and are free of charge. To attend the courses, you need Internet access, basic computer/mobile knowledge and a strong desire to learn.
At this stage, TBC offers two types of courses:
Getting to know the basics of technology – this is a short course consisting of 7 meetings, where students will learn how to create talking programs (chatbots), computer games, applications and other similar technologies. They will learn about media literacy – the issues of properly understanding media messages and defense against threats related to technology.
In addition to the introductory course, TBC offers three training courses where students will acquire specific basic knowledge and create interesting projects.
The educational program was created together with Sandro Asatiani, a technology innovator, lecturer and founder of several startups.
