everis Foundation and the Púlsar Program
The everis Foundation aims to support and promote talent, entrepreneurship and innovation by putting the company's capabilities at the service of education and science projects. The Púlsar Program connects teenage girls between the ages of 15 and 18 with a network of female role models who help them discover and develop their talent to achieve their professional goals. Its main purpose is to assist the teenagers to continue their formative itinerary, without limiting their objectives to any gender condition.
Púlsar Program mentors are women referents in the most diverse areas of society (education, business, economy, social inclusion) who are committed to reducing social gender differences. Púlsar is based on a methodology that relies on the ‘learning by doing’ model, geared towards the promotion of curiosity, exploration, discovery, interaction and the development of contacts.
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.
