Croatian Makers and T-Hrvatski Telekom: Together we are stronger
This year’s grant ‘Together we are stronger’ by T- Hrvatski Telekom (Croatian Telecom Inc.) was awarded to Institute for Youth development and Innovativity (IRIM). This grant is awarded to projects which are dedicated to the education of children in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. For the year 2016 the project Internet of Things & Logo in Croatian schools created by IRIM was awarded the funds of 350,000 Kuna.
Using the strength of the Croatian Makers League network and the great dedication of mentor-teachers in those schools and the enthusiasm of their pupils, with the help of T-Hrvatski Telekom we are now starting the project Internet of Things (IoT) in Croatian schools.
Among the participants of the League we selected the 38 best and most eager schools, and gave them one educational set so that their teachers could get to know the equipment during the summer. In September the schools will receive the rest of the necessary equipment and educate the teachers, so they can teach their pupils how to operate things in our environment over the Internet.
Our goal is to ensure maximum success and demonstrate what can really be done in schools with relatively small funds.
As this level of the project is intended for an older age group, for the younger children to be able to participate and develop the concepts of using modern communication technologies, we have created a competition in creativity by using the Logo technology.
