La fundación everis México lanza los talleres de robótica para niños en entornos desfavorecidos
Everis foundation has more than 700 employees formed and voluntarily participate as instructors in this initiatives.
Mexico everis foundation has launched, for the first time, the programming and robotics workshops outside the everis office in collaboration with Papalote Museo del Niño. The workshop have been done by everis foundation volunteers along five days to 20 kids from Casa Alianza Mexico.
The aim of the program is to contribute the development of both inductive and deductive thinking which allow the kids to learn how to learn, gaining skills for the use of information and communication technology, encouraging interest in STEAM, teamwork and division tasks.
“We think talent is the key to transform the society and we have the compromise to keep boosting the economic and social development of Mexican population. This is the reason we are pleased to boost this kind of initiatives that help us to show the unimaginable science world to both girls and boys future engineers of this country”, Peter Kroll, CEO of everis Mexico, said.
The program, which promotes the inclusion of girls through the mentorship of female leaders in various spheres of society, will now benefit, in addition to kids from public schools, those associated to the social institution. Furthermore, all training and mentoring meetings will take place digitally.
How to fly a drone, how to design an app or how to create your own video game will be some of the topics that will be worked on with the children from July 7 to 16.
This activity will take place online on June 26th, at 16:00, with the help of volunteer trainers from the Foundation.
The jury recognised the project for its street cleaning system which, through artificial intelligence and machine learning, detects, classifies and collects rubbish from the streets.
