Tech Skill-Building for Young People
WHAT: Tigo and our employee volunteers help students learn computer programming and create projects to showcase their new-found talents.
HOW: Our Pixel a Pixel teaches school-age children “computational thinking” skills such as coding, logical analysis and problem solving. Since 2017, more than 64,000 children and hundreds of teachers from 135 schools have benefited from Pixel a Pixel. This learning platform is also accessible online at www.pixelapixel.org.bo.
In May 2019, we gave children a chance to test their skills and knowledge at our first Technological Fair of Coding Education. Nearly 70 children from 10 communities presented computer programming projects that addressed societal problems and needs in Bolivia. Featured technology creations included anti-bullying resources, digital organizational tools for students and accessibility aids for the visually impaired.
