The Team

Founded in 2014, we are a non-profit group specializing in training teachers and children in technology.  Our services focus at the primary school level, but can be customized for secondary and gymnasium levels.  

Our workshops for educators help empower today's teachers with skills and confidence to use technology with their students.  We work closely and in partnership with foundations and strategic business partners to provide discounted or free workshops for the educational community.

Designed with support from EPFL and ETHZ, and domain knowledge experts in the fields of ICT and Education, our workshops allow Educators to explore and learn pedagogical approaches to promote algorithmic thinking, innovation, coding, robotics, and digital media.
