This fall, 52 eighth-graders from PMG “Vasil Drumev” High School in Veliko Tarnovo will study the basics of robotics using the Tinusaur program. The future programmers will be the first to graduate from this elite high school acquiring knowledge and skills with the help of educators from Tinusaur – a platform for learning science and technology. The implementation of this initiative is part of an innovation task assigned to the “Vasil Drumev” high school by the Ministry of Education and Science. It is also joined by the Technical University in Sofia and local businesses in Veliko Tarnovo.
Educators from the thriving science and programming training platform Tinusaur will be in the classroom during both terms. They will teach young students to assemble and program their own minicomputers – Tinusaur kits. By the end of the school year, students will present their personal projects. A regional competition between teams of all classes is also planned. During the spring break and summer vacation, Tinusaur will organize outdoor training.
“It is our responsibility to support the formal technical education so that students have the opportunity to develop their potential for the job of the future. Tinusaur is advancing with the ambition of its graduates, and we believe that together we will be able to take an important step forward for the success in the rapidly changing job market”, said Neven Boyanov, founder of Tinusaur.
