In order to continue with the internationalization of its activities, the Foundation has launched the first edition of the workshops in Lisbon, and wants to continue promoting the STEAM vocations form early ages

The everis foundation has launched the robotics and programming workshops for children in the Portuguese office of everis Lisbon, in order to foster scientific and technological vocations.

Thanks to different educational innovation solutions, during this training, the children can create and design their own robot or video game, master 3D printing, or create Augmented Reality APPs. A team of more than 20 volunteers from the everis foundation, which have also been instructors in these workshops, have received training.. 

15 children and their families have enjoyed programing with Scratch, a computer programming language that allows developing animated stories, video games, scientific model simulations, and multimedia art projects; while acquiring the basis for logical, mathematical, and computational thinking. Therefore, children unleash their imagination thanks to the educational material (robotics kits, 3D printers, PCs, etc.) that the everis foundation makes available to them.
