"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow"

-John Dewey

This one day workshop for kids introduces children to the blockchain technology. Children will learn the functions of blockchain such as consensus, cryptocurrency, double spending,  peer-to-peer transactions, decentralization and mining.

Children will also investigate, using hands on learning, the social impact of the technology, and develop an understanding of use cases and how it relates to real world experiences.

This is a fun and interactive workshop that uses hands-on projects incorporating STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math)

The children will learn about the trading and earning (mining) mechanisms of Cryptocurrencies through interactive activities using mathematical problems.

At the end of the workshop your child will receive a certificate of completion.

Workshop features:

  • One day of interactive games, activities and math problems.

Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided.

Certification: Your kid will receive a certificate upon completion of the course. Once the certificate is granted, it will be hashed on the Ethereum blockchain and is globally accessible for further verification.
