Armenian Educational Foundation Announces the Opening of Four Engineering Labs in Armenia and Artsakh.
Armenian Educational Foundation (AEF) is helping shape Armenia’s future by supporting students studying in technical fields.
AEF’s newest educational program in the burgeoning Information Technology field is its Armath Engineering Laboratories located in village schools in cooperation with Union of Advanced Technology Enterprises (UATE). With the help and generosity of AEF members and donors, Armath Laboratories started working in four village schools, Hadrut, Qajaran #1, Choratan, and Dilijan #4 in January 2019. These new labs were in addition to previously funded Armath Labs in Darbas and Stepanakert #4 schools. Three more labs are planned for 2019, including one in Lorut village school, which will bring the total number of schools which have Armath labs funded by AEF to nine. To date, AEF has committed over $77,000 to fund these nine Armath laboratories.
The Union of Advanced Technology Enterprises (UATE) has initiated and is implementing for already several years the introduction of “Armath” engineering laboratories in the schools of Armenia and Artsakh. As of January, 2016, 252 engineering laboratories-groups, including nearly 6.300 children, are operating across Armenia. The “Armath” laboratories enable the students to master principles with mathematics and exact sciences, engineering, programming and robotics basics, project and manage UAVs.
UATE Executive Director Karen Vardanyan notes that this program is unprecedented. It launched in 2014 and gained a broad international recognition within a short period of time. “Armath” received awards at WITSA Global Excellence Award as a Sustainable Development program. A number of countries (India, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Namibia, Mongolia and Spain) are negotiating with the UATE to introduce the Armath laboratories in their schools.
On January 22, Armath Engineering Laboratory opened at the secondary school no. 155 in Ajapnyak administrative district.
Students and staff of the school were eagerly waiting for the establishment of an engineering laboratory. It is important to mention that the school has invested its own funds to install Armath Engineering Laboratory and increase the quality of education of its students.
Taking into account the scarcity of donor organizations and the priority of installing Armath laboratories in borderline villages and provinces, a number of schools come up with their own initiative to provide schoolchildren with free engineering education.
