STARTech is an enrichment program in computers and technology for teenage boys and girls (7th-9th grade). Previous knowledge is not required, only curiosity and motivation to explore and understand the role of technology in almost every aspect of our lives, and learn how you can be part of it.
The program's participants acquire knowledge, learning and thinking skills, along with practical tools such as writing code in different programming languages, creating computer games and mobile apps, and other up-to-date technologies. At the same time, there is an emphasis on personal development and on nurturing a sense of capability, self-learning, teamwork, research skills and more.
Studies take place in weekly after-school sessions, with instructors who are college or university students in the fields of computer science or software engineering. STARTech classes operate in dozens of communities across Israel, especially where youth have limited access to programs that introduce them to the world of technology and computers – a fascinating world full of challenges and opportunities
