“I'm Not Interested in Science and Technology” is No Longer an Option!

There is no doubt that from one day to the other, the world is shifting and changing at a very fast pace.

Some state that human beings as conscious (not very intelligent) creatures were finally able to expedite the Darwinian’s biological evolution changing the world as we know it in a matter of years rather than decades or millenniums.

If we follow Moore’s law stating that computers’ speed and power will double every 18 months, we can scientifically prove that technical degrees (that take 4 years) are actually worthless from a technical perspective because by the time you are mid-way in your major, what you have learnt will be obsolete!

This all attests to the speed of the unstoppable technological advancement happening in the world.

On the other hand, humans face problems such as food and energy shortage, environment decay and pandemic spreads. We are racing into the destruction of our planet and contrary to parasites and computer viruses (which we have a lot in common with), we do not have another place to live in (Mars Rover, we’re counting on you!).

We live in a world that is technology driven and ever changing. The short-term future is paralleled with existential problems that threaten the life of everybody we know and care about. The question is: what role can we play in all of this?

We have 2 options: we either keep saying that we are not interested in Science and Technology and leave these subjects to the experts (whoever they might be) or we join the game and have an active role in saving the world.

I am not advocating for a world full of engineers and scientists; that would be awfully dull. But we, as a people, need to be informed enough to have a say in matters like DNA cloning, AI weaponry laws, colonizing space and alternative meat.

By being passive about Science and Technology, you are allowing a handful of people in the world to decide your future, the future of everyone you care about and life on earth in general!

I am writing this article while we have a pandemic turning our world upside down, a pandemic which numerous “scientists” warned us about, and existing AI solutions that would’ve been able to detect it. No it wasn’t a conspiracy, simply not enough people were interested in Science!

In the words of the amazing Bill Nye: “There’s nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in Science and Engineering for a better tomorrow, for all humankind”

MAKERBOX by Geek Express
We’re going to get straight to the point here!
Geek Express is introducing a fun and innovative MAKERBOX! What is that you ask? It couldn’t have had a better name as it means a box that you make. 

The MAKERBOX is a DIY (do it yourself) kit, it is a personal creation using a box that contains tools and guidelines. It is a unique STEAM invention you could buy for your child in order to teach him/her science and technology. 

So let us think about it that way, the Geek Express team combined innovation, critical thinking, and STEAM characteristics in the MAKERBOX with a purpose of inspiring children to become active creators instead of passive consumers. How? Each time you build a MAKERBOX  you will enjoy lessons about circuitry, hydraulics, forces, optical illusion, and much more. Then, after each box built, you will receive a certificate of completion. Once all 6 kits are built, then our fellow Geeks, you will complete the Machine Design course with a certificate added to your Digital Portfolio.
                        
Did the MAKERBOX peak your attention enough?

Wait, there's more! The MAKERBOX is a proud Lebanese product idealised, designed, and created by engineers at Geek Express. And we cannot wait for you to get inspired and share the same DIY enthusiasm we enjoy.

How to get the MAKERBOX?

What if we told you that it only takes one subscription for us to ring your doorbell every month and provide you with a new fun and challenging engineering product!  What if we also told you, you can hop by all JouéClub branches and find the MAKERBOX there! 

So, are you ready to move away from the theoretical and get more technical, to open your children's eyes to the world's rapid technological development and for the future of education? 

Get the MAKERBOX and join the Maker Movement!

The philosophy behind Geek Express Camps
Educational, themed, adventurous, project-based and fun! All of the latter adjectives are found in the Geek Express weekly Camps. But what’s the reason behind it? Why did we decide to join all those attributes in only a few days? Let’s tackle the reasons behind the philosophy of our camps:

A. Several platforms

 The reason behind learning technology across multiple platforms is to allow our students to familiarize with different languages. Our singular touch in this regard would be driving our students towards independence. When you have the same language over and over again, eventually and unfortunately, you memorize the steps, allowing you to grasp the concept in a very limited matter. Now imagine you are learning multiple languages through a variety of platforms; this would allow you to focus more on the algorithm instead of learning it word for word. So yes our dear reader, with the variety provided our students are pushed towards exploring and deepening their thinking and debugging skills. 

B. Project-based approach

Lately, any camp would expose you to technical skills needed in either Computer Science, Film Making, Engineering, Electronics or Robotics. Those disciplines are usually given separately since each one would offer you with a different educational value. Geek Express camps do the opposite. We cross all those disciplines in a 5-day camp under one theme resulting in an astonishing application of STEAM abilities rather than a theoretical approach of STEAM.

C. Teamwork 

Imagine yourself at work with a few days deadline for an important project! Yes, you could finish it alone but what if you had a team with you? What if each person in the team is working on one aspect of the project resulting in an intricate and imaginative model? This is exactly why we believe teamwork is a quality every child should have. It is a way to teach our students patience, communication skills, and most importantly co-working skills all under one goal, creating astonishing STEAM projects made through collaborative effort.

D. Theme work 

Technology in our Camps is the tool for a child’s creative mind. With a little guidance from our end and imagination from theirs, our students use tools such as Arduino and electrical components, littleBits, and engineering components to create cities, monster movies, and treasure hunts. With their innovative ideas, our students took us around the world only by practicing STEAM skills. Every theme serves a different educational purpose to teach our students problem-thinking, problem-solving and hands-on techniques in a fun environment! 

Our philosophy is then clear:
If you are five, seventeen or in between, may technology be ever in your favor!
