Hack Cyprus 2013 - Youth Day

A day dedicated to the next generation of great Cypriot technologists. We will be hosting a variety of fast-paced workshops for students aged 13-19 who are interested in programming and would like to learn more about the principles of coding, engineering and robotics. Our main aim is to inspire and educate students to get more involved with technology, not only during school hours, but also with extra-curricular activities.

Μια ημερίδα αφιερωμένη στην επόμενη γενιά των μεγάλων Κυπρίων τεχνολόγων. Θα φιλοξενήσουμε ένα αριθμό πρακτικών εργαστήριων για μαθητές ηλικίας 13-19 που ενδιαφέρονται να μάθουν περισσότερα σχετικά με τις αρχές του προγραμματισμού, της μηχανικής και της ρομποτικής. Κύριος στόχος μας είναι να εμπνεύσουμε και να εκπαιδεύσουμε τους μαθητές έτσι ώστε να έρθουν πιό κοντά στην τεχνολογία, όχι μόνο μέσω του σχολείου, αλλά και με εξωσχολικές δραστηριότητες.
