Future tech stars are nurtured at experimental tech workshops

According to the statement, Experiment Technology Workshops, which will be the driving force behind the National Technology Move for Turkey’s development and train young individuals with skills in high-tech development and production, will continue to provide technology trainings to their students with 81 Experiment Technology Workshops in 55 provinces, as well as the examinations held this year. By the end of 2022, 100 experimental technology workshops in 81 provinces are expected to be completed and put into operation. In the workshops, technologies such as design and production, robotic coding, electronic programming and the Internet of things, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, software technologies, energy technologies, aeronautical and space technologies, materials science and nanotechnology, advanced robotics and mobile application will be offered to students under the Future Technology Stars program. It also aims to develop student skills such as entrepreneurship, creative thinking, critical thinking, complex problem solving, effective communication and teamwork.

At Experimental Technology Workshops, where students participating in the program are entitled to free 3-year education, the first two years of 3-year education are technology-based training and project development, and one year is the process of participating in national and international team competitions. A common educational program is implemented in the Experimental Technological Workshops, where the principle of equal opportunities in education is taken into account.


Experimental technology workshops

As part of the Presidency’s 100-day action plan, this project aims to enable the implementation of Turkey’s national technological development by providing equal opportunities in each province from Edirne to Hakkari, with the aim to discover and develop the scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs of the future. Project; It is carried out with the cooperation of 4 institutions, namely the Ministry of Industry and Technology, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, TÜBİTAK and the Turkish Technology Team Foundation.
