STEM workshops on electronics and robotics held by the Tinusaur Foundation in Johannesburg, South Africa

From February 19 to 23, the Sci-Bono Discovery Center in Johannesburg, South Africa, hosted a series of STEM workshops on electronics and robotics for students. Students from 11 schools and their teachers attended the events. The initiative aims to improve science education and give students access to modern educational products and technologies.

This initiative was made possible thanks to the joint efforts of several organizations from the non-profit sector in Bulgaria, the USA, and South Africa:

Representatives from the two educational departments attended the opening of the events:

Attaché Kaloyan Georgiev from the Bulgarian Embassy in South Africa also addressed the attendees.

During the workshops, students worked with tools such as a soldering iron, assembled a miniature Tinusaur computer, and learned how to program it. After the activities, they could keep the results of their work for themselves.

During the workshops, the idea of preparing and signing a memorandum between the Ministry of Education of Bulgaria and the two educational departments of South Africa was raised. Such a relationship will help bring the experience and expertise of Bulgarian educators to their South African colleagues.

In the upcoming months, the work between the students, the teachers, and the Tinusaur team will continue online. They will improve their knowledge and skills and prepare better for future jobs.
