They were implemented as part of the equipment and infrastructure work plans in technical schools from San Nicolas and Ramallo that Ternium Argentina Foundation Hermano Agustin and Enrique Rocca carried out with an investment of over 3 and a half million dollars.
Internet connectivity, computers, laptops, interactive screens, conference audio systems and webcams for online broadcast are some of the characteristics from these modern learning areas.
The Technical Gen Program has among its main objectives to reinforce the formation of the future technician graduates and to improve their skills and capacities to enter an industry 4.0 strongly driven by innovation and digital transformation.
As part of the investment plan, there are already 4 technological classrooms available for the students in technical schools from the district: The school N°1 from Ramallo and the schools N°2, N°6, and Fray Luis Beltran from San Nicolas.
Every technological classroom has internet connectivity, 40 portable computers, and a computer for the teacher that comes with an interactive screen, a conference audio system, and webcams for online broadcast.
During isolations periods, the classrooms allowed the young students to continue their education virtually, ensuring access to education through technological equipment with connectivity.
Nowadays, with the return of in-person school, classrooms are in full use and they were pivotal for the development of the Technical Gen Makers virtual event, where over 60 students from technicals participated in a hackathon interacting simultaneously via zoom from their facilities.
Access to technology is key for the employability of future technicians who will enter an industry marked by digitalization.
