My 3 kids were fighting to get on the computer last night to do Maths. I think its brilliant - they even missed X-factor to do Maths!
Adopt a School
4to12maths participate in the it@cork Adopt-a-School Scheme
Improving IT in Irish Schools
The it@cork European tech cluster has introduced a new adopt-a-school scheme that will see 4to12maths along with household tech names like EMC, IBM, Trend Micro, Quest and McAfee select schools and help them to digitise.
What can be provided under the scheme can range from providing software development classes, donating useful IT equipment, providing IT support, providing guest speakers for classes interested in IT careers, offering work experience to transition-year students or helping to set up CoderDojo events for local children interested in learning how to write software code, the poetry of the 21st century.
This scheme dovetails perfectly with 4to12maths's vision of providing our school-going children with the 'knowledge economy' skills (maths being the foundation) that are in such a high demand in these time.
Watch this space for more details in the new 2012/2013 academic year.
