Croatian Makers is a project developed by The Institute for Youth Development and Innovativity

(This page contains only a short English summary of the content written in Croatian – see additional info at the bottom of the page)

The Institute for Youth Development and Innovativity (Croatian acronym IRIM) is privately funded and its mission is contained in its name. We believe that the mental gap between the developed world and Croatia is getting ever deeper, but that in the time of open and publicly available technologies and media it is ever easier to jump over it – the gap is narrowing.

IRIM sees as the main platform for development of youth robotics and automation, which have become easily accessible – technological and financial barriers for entry are markedly reduced, and tactility, challenge and speed of achievement of results make them extremely attractive as a didactic tool.

Robotics and automation are ideal tools for entry into the world of programming and STEM in general in which the Croatian school system is particularly deficient. However, its main contribution to society IRIM sees in changing the mindset and shifting the focus from the past into the future.

The founders of IRIM are Nenad and Rujana Bakić.

IRIM donates and develops robotics and automation education in elementary school-age children, but also among older youth who are closer to the world of work and entrepreneurship.

 

By January 2016 IRIM has donated equipment to more than sixty schools and youth centers. Our Croatian Makers league includes more than 360 schools and other organizations and more than a 1800 robots were donated.

Croatian Makers is a privately financed initiative developing and deploying a ‘layered family of platforms’ for STEM initiatives in school.
