Science for Youth Programme to build on changing skills for a changing world

Robotics Clubs, Summer Innovation Camp and Students Scholarships for talented kids

The Foundation Vision for Science and Technology Growth is working on bridging the gap between skills needed on the labour market and education. The tools for this will be Science for Youth Programme, which includes Robotics Clubs initiative, Summer Innovation Camp and Students Scholarships for students from Bulgaria and abroad, who are considering enrolling in Bulgarian university.

Why we are pursuing this initiative? The rules of competition have been rewritten. It is not so much about natural resources, but about talents, which makes economies to grow. How can we catalyse the creative transformation that will carry the economies and organisations into the future? There will be no ready-made human capital in the future due to the constant labour market transformation, but self-made skills are possible. Robotics Clubs and Summer Innovation Camp will build on changing skills for a changing world and the Scholarship fund will bring more students in Bulgarian Universities.

Creating and attracting talents is the key for knowledge economy success. The Science for Youth Programme is all about creating talents for future growth of companies. Foundation Vision for Science and Technology Growth is organizing Robotics clubs, Summer Innovation Camp and Students Scholarship Scheme, aiming at spreading the knowledge and increasing skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), as well as team working, which are vital for the labour market. Robotics is in the core of artificial Intelligence and needs knowledge in science, technology, engineering and math, motivates children to master in those topics as well as to work in teams.  The Innovation camp and scholarship fund will attract students, which can become your future employees. The programme is open also to other occupations which are demanded on the labour market.

There is a need to introduce such programme on a wider base which we consider will not only motivate more children to pursue career in technology industries, but also bring pressure on the reforms the traditional education system needs.
