ICE Malta, partners of The MITA STEM Summer Club
ICE Malta, has partnered with MITA to deliver practical sessions in Robotics & Game Development with Kodu for the STEM Summer Club – a pilot project which aims to increase students’ interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) through the delivery of hands on classroom activities.
Over 200 students ages 10 to 12 from five summer schools are participating in this year’s pilot project. The aim is to encourage them to follow a STEM study path at Form 3 level. “Exposing kids to the exciting world of STEM studies and careers at an early age is crucial in sustaining the growing demand for such skills. STEM sectors are drivers of productivity, innovation, and economic growth and are particularly important increasing global competitiveness” MITA’s Executive Chairman, Mr. Tony Sultana
‘Following past collaborations such as Girls in ICT Day amongst other events, we are delighted to be working with the Mita team on this initiative. We are committed to ensure that young talent are given all the tools & resources and learn about career opportunities in Code, Creative, Technical and Games fields. In the coming weeks we will be launching a series of Robotics & Game Development with Kodu workshops as well as our School Roadshow visiting secondary government, church and private schools. Schools who would like full details are requested to send an email to [email protected]’ Nikolai Sammut, director of ICE Malta concluded.
