Claudio Ishuri, Esquel Digital Point coordinator, told CNN the lid He announced that they are currently working on organizing a course for children over the age of eight and their families, which will end the registration phase in the second half of February.
“The online training course was created in Esquel, but it will be available throughout Argentina. It is a technology project targeting children in particular and families in general so that they can deal with the epidemic in the best way possible at home,” he said.
We are happy that it will be uploaded to the national platform. We have high expectations for that. The end result of the workshop will be a toy in the form of a motorized boat that will have a lighting system. ”
“We have seen in other workshops that there are many children interested in science and technology,” he said, noting that “the most enjoyable way is the way to realize the project and as a family.” “During the second half of February, registration will take place in the course, which will be free. These days we upload the content to the platform, which takes time.”
