The project

#Tech4Cambodia is a high educational impact project promoted by Pasiona and for which training in robotics is taught. A program that includes everything from mathematics to teamwork. The course is aimed at teachers and students (15-18 years) of the school of Llar d'Infants del Món en Camboya.

We approach to them the access to technology and also provide them with the necessary skills to face their professional career; to ensure that they can own their future.

The keys of a high educational impact project

Lego robotics

1

Motivation

Better understanding of mathematics, physics and technology, subjects that they usually find boring and with which they feel uncomfortable. Awake their interest through assembling and programming of LEGO robots, technology that they have never seen or handled before.

2

Development

Developing creativity, imagination, motor and cognitive skills and critical thinking of students. Promoting self-esteem, collaboration, teamwork and empowerment.

Continuity

Sow the seed of a project with a vocation for continuity. The teachers of La Llar d’Infants will be trained to be able to carry on the training throughout the course, trying to incorporating robotics as one more subject in the educational plan.

These are the innovators, educators, leaders and learners of the 21st century!

Reflections from Cambodia

I am very interested in the project because it is a new technology in Cambodia and I would really like to learn it. We want to thank Passiona for making it possible for us to access it [DUONG Sophea, administrator of La Llar].

  • Clara Planet was born in Barcelona but coexisted with many cultures. Her multilingual education and its globality from extensive traveling has equipped her with a sense for variety of human interaction around the world. As a Technology lover she’s always looking for new challenges and after teaching robotics in Barcelona during 3 years, she wanted to go a step beyond
