The project will create a nurturing learning environment that will provide a series of diversified activities, including fun ones that require hands-on application of science, technology and crafts (including mechanics, electricity, electronics). Students will be challenged to choose from a variety of Tekwill based programs- from more IT-oriented and technical workshops and meetups to activities that include make, build, “think with their minds hands” and design while solving individually or in group a variety of tasks or real-life problems. Importantly, the project will feature an environment that encourages students to trust themselves, to take ownership of their own learning, and to feel safe while making mistakes. Beyond the technical skills gained at Tekwill as part of the project, students will be able to strengthen essential soft skills like problem solving, communication skills, critical thinking, basic digital skills and working in teams. To achieve the objective and contribute to the aim of the project a certain number of activities will be implemented. Some of them will be focused on taking the students out and putting them simply in a different working environment, acquiring new skills and abilities, others on working in a team and implementing joint projects. A part of activities will familiarize students and their professors with the new technologies, will introduce them to the Tekwill community.
