The aim of the project has been to introduce young people to new technologies such as artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, 3D printing, programming, robotics, and gamification. Additionally, it aimed to reshape the perception of future job opportunities and entrepreneurship and promote international cooperation while creating international networks.

The primary target group consisted of local youth, including those in the final stages of basic education, transitioning to or already studying in secondary education. The project encouraged young people to recognize their own skills and commercialize abilities learned through hobbies, for example.

Dr. Sara Abou Afash, an education expert from Lebanon, shared insights about her work in the field of learning. She presented and held a workshop on analyzing data using artificial intelligence.
