From March 9-10, one of our bilingual secondary school students, Murat Abdullin, was selected by Techspark Academy to participate in a cybersecurity weekend hosted at the Google headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland.
Techspark Academy believes that early interaction with the latest technology is the optimal way for students to best preapare for their future, no matter the path they take in their education or career. Especially since our world is shaped by science, technology and innovation. Given the fact that the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development found that 65% of kids today will be in jobs that have yet to be invented - this seems to be pretty important.
Thus, as a child's future will be tech-filled, traditional education seems to rarely keep up with these ever-changing concepts. That's where they come in as a way to offer fun and up-to-date courses for 8 to 18 year olds. These courses cover the seven different areas of STEM, Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics, as they encourage students to think, create and develop curiosity for shaping the future. Their courses are delivered in different formats - camps, in-school sessions and workshops so read the rest of our article here to learn more about their cybersecurity weekend they did in collaboration with Google.
