Nowadays world of technology is an inseparable part of our world – Information Technology has changed the way we communicate, work, learn, entertain or even date. Nevertheless, science is still concerned as difficult, incomprehensible and dedicated only for highly specialized experts. Digital University Foundation wants to break this stereotype. Our DigiKids workshops show children that computer science, mathematics, entrepreneurship and robotics can be a Great fun and are not as difficult as they appear.
The DigiKids program is a scientific fun with experiencing new technologies. These are educational activities for children and Young people, with topics of broadly understood technology – programming, math and internet usage, among others. This is a series of workshops where children learn new things and find answers to many technological questions that adults sometimes do not have the time to answer (or do not know the answer).
Children are born with the natural curiosity of the world. They ask the adults a lot of questions, constantly researching, questing, inquireing. The ideal education system is one that supports the curiosity of the world, is innovative, creative, self-reliant, and uses new technologies. Learning can and should be attractive and interesting.
This is what we place a bet on the DigiKids!
We give kids the space to explore and bring up a creativity. We show children that new technologies, science, the Internet, programming are exciting tools. We prove to children that learning is fun and new technologies allow to get to know the world better. We want children to acquire the skills to become modern creators.
By using the new technologies, children learn the creative problem-solving, perfect logical thinking, spatial imagination, develop manual skills, learn individual and group work, and reinforce belief in their own abilities and build self-confidence.
