Scientific Seedbed Program served 4027 children and young people

In the first five months of 2024, children and young people received knowledge in robotics, astronomy and agroecology

In the first five months of 2024, with the National Scientific Nursery Program of the Ministry of Science and Technology (Mincyt), through its affiliated entity Fundacite Táchira, 4027 children and young people have been served in various scientific and technological disciplines.

Areas such as robotics, astronomy and agroecology are part of the teachings explored.

A team of 143 teachers has accompanied the students in this learning process, and 18 public educational institutions and four schools have been part of the program.

The courses and workshops have been designed to awaken the curiosity and creativity of children and young people. A total of 62 workshops and 6 virtual courses have been taught.

Knowledge about chemistry was generated, where they addressed basic concepts such as the structure of matter and chemical reactions through experiments for greater understanding in this scientific discipline.

Regarding astronomy, the online courses allowed students to obtain knowledge in the world of the universe, exploring topics such as planets, stars, galaxies and cosmic phenomena. 

Young people have been able to expand their knowledge about space and its mysteries.

The virtual algebra course was taught which gave students the opportunity to strengthen their mathematical skills, addressing concepts such as equations, functions and algebraic operations. 

These courses have been key to promoting students' logical and deductive thinking, as well as improving their ability to solve mathematical problems effectively.

Agroecology workshops were also held for students, allowing children and young people to learn about the importance of sustainable agriculture and how they can contribute to the conservation of the environment with responsible agricultural practices.

For their part, the teachers of the “Manos a la Siembra” Program participated in a three-consecutive-day course called Sustainable Gardens. The course provided teachers with the tools necessary to teach their students about the importance of crop diversity, soil and water conservation, and agricultural waste reduction.

The National Scientific Seedbed Program seeks to inspire children and young people to become the líderIt is of tomorrow, capable of facing the challenges of the future with creativity and knowledge.
