High-Tech Education for Children

Description

Educators around the globe are aggressively promoting STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math) for children in schools.  These important subjects help secure student’s futures in a world filled with high tech advances in nearly every aspect of live.  

This project aims to augment existing high tech classes including robotics, computer programming and 3-d printing  at schools and children centers across Armenia with additional hardware and educational materials aimed at familiarizing students with drone and photography technology.  Support this effort and help arm our future generations with the skills they need to succeed in our ever changing world.

The Need

Students need to be armed with STEM education to compete in an every increasing high tech society.  Current STEM classes offered in most of Armenia’s schools do not include drone and photography education.  This project will help familiarize students with this technology. 

Short Term Impact

In the short term, schools and children centers will receive both hardware and appropriate instruction on drone usage, repairs and maintenance.  

Long Term Impact

In the long run, as these students are exposed to and master drone usage, they will be more confident in their abilities to utilize drones.  In addition, having this technology and classes available in schools will encourage them to pursue related tech careers and higher education. 

Sponsors Benefits

All sponsors of this important project will be listed on The Paros Foundation’s website and in all press related to this project. Visits to these programs can be arranged for sponsors visiting Armenia.

Our Paros team visited the Armat Odum Lab at a school in Vardenis where students take STEM courses. With appropriate funds raised, we hope to give them a drone to increase their STEM knowledge.

About a month later the Armat Odum Lab at a school in Vardenis was given a drone. With the help of our donors, we are excited to donate many more drones to schools in Armenia.

As part of the High-Tech Education program a guest speaker and a drone operator visited the Nerkin Karmir Aghbyur School to show the children more about the abilities and usage of drones.
