We are very happy and pleased to share with you that Ideas Factory has finally launched its Fabricators program in a network of Bulgarian schools! The idea is simple – through the methods of non-formal education, civic engagement and social entrepreneurship to provoke the children from the high school classes to realize their ideas in one of these areas and to help them with a team of great trainers! If you want to include your school in the Factory’s network, please contact us!
We started in 2011, and in 2012 we began developing our program „Ideas Factory in School”, because our educational system has a chance to motivate and inspire rather than alienate. We started with Sofia: 13th School near the Women’s Market, 22nd High School and went on with 97th High School in Lulin and classes around the country. All that we want to tell them is that they can actively shape up the reality in which they live. Through games and approaches adapted for the age group 13 to 18, we stimulated them to learn how many liters of water are required for the production of a pair of jeans and how many precious metals are there in a mobile phone. What is best about the Ideas Factory in School is that the participating students will be able to apply with an initiative of their own that aims to improve their neighborhood or their school, or to refresh their community. The plan is to create 10 school clubs “Ideas Factory” by the end of 2014. Do you want to invite us to a school anywhere in Bulgaria?
