Technokrati is an educational centre for children utilizing new technologies which stimulate children's imagination and give them scientific and practical knowledge.
Technologies are changing the way children are living, communicating, learning and creating. At the same time the technological revolution is gradually automating all former working processes. In order to be more successful in the future, children need an education which will teach them how to use effectively the variety of new technologies and which will develop their creative and critical thinking, their ability to work in a team.
Technokrati offers a complex training program utilizing technologies as a means to unlock new interests and skills. They train children aged 7-16 in small groups, allowing working in team and giving individual attention to every single child. In their courses in robotics, programming and green energy young Technokrati solve various practical tasks that they should solve on their own – for example, how to construct a wind turbine or how to program a robot. This process encourages them to think creatively, be curious, but also patient, and to work together. Technokrati’s goal is to be a partner for the educational system in Bulgaria: by offering tech training programs suitable to be implemented in schools, and by consulting schools and educational institutions how to invest smartly in new technologies for education.
