What is the Future Academy?

It's professional workshops introducing youth to the world of new technologies and innovations. Participants will gain practical experience in areas according to their preferences: robotics, programming, or 3D printing, led by experts from universities, partners, and members of the Innovations Hub Foundation.

The Academy focuses on learning through practice and creating own projects using advanced tools like 3D printers and Arduino kits.

Workshops conducted by experts are aimed at practical application of technical skills, opening new opportunities and perspectives for participants. We invite you to a world where passion meets practice, and education becomes an adventure!

Our mission

Why we do this?

In Foster Care, there is a lack of volunteers from the fields of science and initiatives aimed at developing hard skills. Moreover, the lack of proper infrastructure and necessary equipment limits the possibilities of conducting workshops and training. And that's just the tip of the iceberg!

Youth raised in care facilities often face challenges when they reach adulthood. At the age of 18, their formal care usually ends, leaving them to suddenly fend for themselves in adult life - often without a defined career path.

Youths aged 14-17 are the largest group in Foster Care - 44.9%*. This is a key period for their own development, but they often have a lack of authorities who could supplement the knowledge acquired at school with practical skills, crucial for independence and entering adult life.

What makes the Academy so special?

In workshops about 20 people will participate,

allowing experts to provide individual attention to each participant and answer their questions.

Theory is important, but at the Future Academy, we primarily focus on practice.

Participants have the opportunity to work on 3D printers and robots, allowing them to immediately apply their acquired knowledge.

During the workshops, we use innovative teaching methods

that make learning interesting and engaging. This allows participants to directly apply the knowledge they've gained.

Participants, using the knowledge acquired in the workshop part,

will create their own project in groups, and the most engaged receive rewards.

We place great emphasis on developing skills

such as creative thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork.

We offer the opportunity to learn from specialists and experts,

which is not only a source of knowledge but also an inspiration and motivation for further development.
