The school break is coming and most parents only have a few weeks of vacation to enjoy with the family. This is how holiday colonies appear as the great option for children to spend some time outdoors. The goal of the holiday colony is to keep children away from the screens.

This initiative offers courses developed in collaboration with Google, Lego and YouTubeedU, leaders in today's technology and education industries. The different proposals are aimed at boys between 6 and 16 years old. With them, workshops are held in programming, robotics , science, video games, 3D printing, among others . Thus, it seeks to enhance the reasoning and cognitive skills of young people and encourage the work of the team.
In Rio Grande, Tierra del Fuego province, the Tech 2020 Colonies propose to learn by playing about new technologies . The proposed robotic nuclea, 3D design, games, experiments, programming and augmented reality.
The activities are aimed at boys and girls from 7 to 13 years of age. The undersecretary of New Technologies and Smart City, Martín Porcel, explained the objectives of the Technological Colonies. The idea is to “complete the range of options available for this summer. Also bring the kids in a playful way to what is the development and knowledge of new technologies.
