TechLab is an innovative educational workshop that seeks not only to improve children’s essential skills, but also to turn them into active inventors, rather than mere reproducers of knowledge from teaching material. Through hands-on workshops, aided by the STEAM method, we provide an engaging environment where children can explore, learn and grow. Our focus goes beyond the traditional, preparing students for the challenges of the 21st century, in line with UNESCO’s objectives, developing essential competencies and skills for the future.
