The event was held at the “St. Ivan Rilski” school, where the children had the opportunity to meet the founder of Tinusaur – Neven Boyanov personally, and he and his colleagues were able to delight the students and give them an exciting experience in the world of robotics.
The workshop was held in one of the specialized classrooms in the school after school hours. Thus, both the teachers and the parents of the children had the opportunity to be present to see the whole process of creating the miniature computers live. Each child received an individual Tinusaur Kids.Micro kit with circuit boards and electronic components worth BGN 50, and the symbolic participation fee was BGN 5.
The founder of Tinusaur – Neven Boyanov, helped the children and explained every single step of assembling, handling a soldering iron, and creating a program. 6 children of different ages participated in the initiative. They did not realize when almost 4 hours had passed, and at the end, they had all successfully assembled and programmed their miniature computers, which remained for them.
Thanks to the Vivacom Regional Grant and the Tinusaur Foundation, students from another small school in the Veliko Tarnovo region had the opportunity to look at subjects such as mathematics, physics, and informatics from a different angle and to understand that learning can be fun.
Through this joint initiative, we aim to reach as many small schools as possible, communicate with principals and teachers, and enable children to develop their creativity and innovative thinking, preparing them for the challenges of the future.
