Essence
Technology is an essential part of life and has already reshaped the way we learn, communicate, and work. The main goal of this program is to prepare children for the changes around the corner and make them active creators rather than passive consumers - not to make the child a programmer or an engineer, but to introduce logical thinking, teamwork, and patience. The idea behind this program is to bring to the surface the hidden potential in any child, provoking the discoverer, the innovator and the artist.

Robotics and Renewable Energy with Technokrati®

Robotics
The program focuses on building a robot, in teams of two. During that process children learn how to handle emotions, work with another person on a project, and own their own mistakes. After each team builds their robot, we discuss the most important parts, such as: brain (processor), motors, and sensors! Last but not least, together we build the foundations of programming by learning about block programming, algorithms, and critical thinking. 


Renewable Energy
The world around us changes every day. Mankind builds its future thanks to new technologies and creative ideas.  This class focuses on the perception and applicability of renewable energy sources and the way we can create energy by renewables such as the sun, water and wind.
Some of our experiments include:
- Generating energy by using a photovoltaic solar panel
- Wind turbine and the way we turn wind into electricity
- Experimenting with bio fuel – ethanol
- Explaining the process of “electrolysis” and creating hydrogen from water

Sports
We alternate between technology and sports, so that children can exercise, relax, and reuse their research potential.
We offer a wide range of outdoor games in our green park and inside in our modern indoor sports facilities. Consistent with the students’ capabilities, they play football, volleyball, basketball, softball, Frisbee, badminton, or table tennis. They also enjoy games like ball-over-rope, dodgeball, relay (race) games, cognitive games, and gymnastics.

Price
BGN 490 VAT incl.
