Summary

Fundacion Global AC&T, provides fun and simple workshops for the Colombian children in rural and poor parts of the country. They build their own toys while they learn about math and tech. At the end of the workshop, the children take at home the toys that they built. We have 5 fun projects that support 500 children between 6 and 9 years old. They can explore and learn about how things work. This is a critical step where we give equal opportunities to our scientists and engineers of the future.

Challenge

Our children in the rural and poor areas of Colombia have not the same opportunities that our urban children have had. The quality of education in the rural and poor areas of Colombia is low. Colombia scores lowest in the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA). The reason for this is that the children do not have the same access to the didactic materials to learn math and technology. There is an equality issue regarding opportunities in all ages of the Colombian school life.

Solution

Our simple program will provide material to wake up our children and generate the curiosity about how things work. The students enjoy making their own toys and they are more interested in learning, science, math and technology. We choose to do workshops with the small cities and their rural schools. Each child receives the didactic material, a guide and suggestions about they can modify or create their new toys. We expect to work with 30 different cities and rural schools.

Long-Term Impact

The most important thing is that our children believe in themselves. They need to know that they can do it! This is possible once they have skills to do math, science and technology. This project is a window, where they can see and discover more opportunities in their future. This project is just the start.
