Saving our planet with Kids2IT
On 31st January IT Cluster came to one of Kharkiv middle schools №51 with one more game in the season for students. Roman Pugashev and Ekaterina Pilipenko, the representatives from the INSART company, were mentors at this event. This time we have conquered new heights — teams were making up a concept of deep-sea equipment for ocean cleaning and a sticker-sensor of emotions. Read in detail about the process of developing devices and impressions.
The students of the 10th classes participated in the game. They were so active in discussing future devices, their development, and further selling. For each project, children came up with a design, strategy of development, their use, and even logos.
New professions are new possibilities
Ponomareva Yulia, the deputy director of the school, told about her impressions: «It is a very entertaining and necessary event. Especially when you see how differently the children are revealing».
Indeed, the game opened new sides of familiar professions. Children tried themselves as developers, designers, and marketers. Besides, they learned how to work in a team. Each of them contributed to a project in a discussion.
We are sure this kind of experience will help children in the future with the right choice in a profession. This way we can improve our education sector and save the planet.
Probably you want to be a mentor and show children new horizons of development?
Then start your game and join us!
About the Project
Kharkiv IT Cluster implements Kids2IT project for young people of Kharkiv and Kharkiv region. We tell students about the professions that are represented in IT. Also we change the stereotype «IT specialist is only a programmer». Our project allows children to choose the professional development vector that suits them.
