During this quarantine period, the “El Garage Project Hub” team has been dedicated to designing specialized content for children, youth, and teachers with the aim of teaching them science, technology, engineering, and mathematics regardless of physical distancing. Using free programming platforms, robotics, 3D design; As well as videos, tutorials, and live links, El Garage’s reach has been to thousands of people both in Mexico and in the United States, who can access the content from home.
Through El Garage’s social networks, anyone from anywhere in the world can access quality content, which seeks to prepare future world leaders from an early age. Not only technical skills are developed, such as science and technology, soft skills such as communication, leadership, empathy, and solving real problems are also developed.
One of the examples of projects that have been carried out in this quarantine was “Boy and Girl Day 2020”. We managed to connect more than 15,000 boys and girls from all over Mexico and the United States and from more than 300 schools, who have been taking workshops taught by global experts; all from building rockets at home, to making robots that help you clean the kitchen, said Andrés Daniel Ruelas, director of the company.
Transitioning from offering face-to-face workshops in dozens of public schools, we managed to migrate our model to 100% online, where hundreds of children are motivated daily to learn new things. We must take advantage of this pandemic as a moment of opportunity for our future generations to prepare for jobs that don’t yet exist and to be aware of the problems that are happening in the world, all with the aim of helping children learn to design solutions that solve these issues.
