Provectus and IT2School Creative Educational Zone AtomSpace in Odessa

In August 2017, Provectus in cooperation with IT2School will open AtomSpace in Odessa, a space for the digital creativity of teenagers, which will be a mix of a coworking space, lecture hall and boot camp.

At AtomSpace 14-18-year-old teens can learn and apply their knowledge in the field of Technology, Engineering and Math to solve pressing problems or create new value for themselves and others.

This is an opportunity not only for additional personal training and development, but a place to gain experience in implementing new ideas, as well as valuable social and innovative projects.

AtomSpace coworking will have well-equipped workplaces where teens can independently learn or work. Social networks, games, and everything connected with politics and religion are off limits here. There will be a mentor present during the coworking open hours (practicing IT specialist or teacher).

At the lecture hall, kids will have an opportunity to attend free lectures, master classes, workshops, mini-courses, and conferences.

Those willing to participate in boot camp would be able to work on small real-life IT projects in a group of up to 10 people under the mentor’s guidance.

“In addition to developing skills of our own employees, it is important to focus on the development of the younger generation. The key reason is that they will be able to bring in innovations to our lives in 5-10 years’ time. That’s why we decided to become one of the organizers of AtomSpace. We don’t want our children out on the streets smoking cigarettes. They shouldn’t be surrounded in their free time by all the bad things that are out there. We want them to aspire to something great from early on, to create, develop, and nurture themselves into great professionals. This is our investment in the future of Odessa and our country,”

noted Nick Antonov, COO of Provectus.

Anna Derevyanko, CEO @ IT2School, added that

“the desire to create such a space arose in the process of working at IT2School. The work/study process goes as follows: after 3 hours of work on their own projects (instead of the planned hour work) on Saturday, students ask the teacher to stay for longer and continue the lesson. This is the best motivation for creating such space, where every interested child will have the opportunity to communicate and get answers to questions. I believe that AtomSpace will enable the younger generation to immerse themselves in the world of digital creativity fully.”

AtomSpace will cordially open its doors in August 2017. In the meantime, the organizers invite partners, mentors and all those who are not indifferent to the future development of the new IT generation to join in. You can find out more about this project on the website:
