Challenge

In a country with millions of unemployed, about 1.3 million teenagers are out of school. Disinterest is one of the main causes. On the other hand, by 2030 there will be a deficit of 1 million IT professionals. These numbers of devastating effects show that Brazil has its progress halted by the level of preparation in digital education. This "technological exclusion" generates "economic gaps" and presents a new form of violence that leads to a way of maintaining and expanding inequalities.

Solution

Technological education must happen in basic education so that students have access to this powerful tool of inclusion and socioeconomic development. Considering the great interest of young people in the subject, the use of robotics and programming teaching, with the use of practical workshops, triggers significant multidisciplinary learning and stimulates vocations to the area of technology. The student must maintain presence and good grades in the school to remain in the program.

Long-Term Impact

It is expected that the teaching of Robotics and Programming, for 250 minority students and socially vulnerable children, will bring intimacy with technology opening the opportunity to identify and leverage talents that can feel synergy with the area and welcome it as future professional life. The cost aid provided to each student should stimulate engagement and contribute to their self-esteem and the material they build in the activities will bring inspiration to other students.
