Through this project, there is an immediate objective of upskilling Youth Workers, and a subsequent objective of engaging with and upskilling young people through non-formal methods. Our project methods include the development of three main outputs:
- A hands-on fun-packed training curriculum and workshops with non-formal approaches to Coding, A.I. and Robotics. Learning by building and Coding Robots and understanding A.I. through gamification in a non-formal and fun environment. The workshops will be the gateway for Youth workers to understand how Robotics, Coding and A.I. are used in the industry and why they need to teach these futuristic skills to the young people and how they should make learning fun for their students.
- A set of resources for youth workers on how to stimulate interest in coding, A.I., and robotics and how to support the introduction of these topics through non-formal educational methods– This will help professionals in Youth work to develop their own skills base.
- A Methodology and Implementation strategy that promotes cross-sectoral dialogue and the involvement in the youth sector, in terms of supporting the training of staff, managers, youth workers at a local and regional level.
