Victoria Group supports “Battle for Knowledge”
After the “Battle for the Babies” (“Bitka za bebe”), Fund B92 is organizing a national educational program “Battle for Knowledge” (“Bitka za znanje”) aimed at primary school children. Victoria Group supported this program as well and gave its contribution by donating teaching tools for KODigranje (Code-Play), the first project within the “Battle for Knowledge”. The tool used in this project is an educational robot called mBot which introduces the primary school children to the world of robotics and the basics of programming while encouraging logical thinking and creativity.
This program generated huge interest – 345 schools applied for participation. The plan is to provide each school with five robots, and Victoria Group’s donation was instrumental in equipping the primary school “Marko Stojanović” from Vračev Gaj.
The teachers had previously been trained to work with educational robots, so the students have already started learning the basics of programming and robotics, and they are preparing for the KODigranje (Code-Play) competition. Student teams from all schools participating in the program will form a league and have a chance to display their previously obtained programming skills, and the final competition between the best teams will take place in late June.
