Globant at Vatican City!

Globant was part of the launch of Scholas Labs, the IT and Education Project Accelerator powered by Pope Francis. This non-profit initiative promotes inclusion through innovation, by building a global classroom oriented toward world peace.

 

Scholas Labs is open for individuals and startups from around the world who are interested in postulated projects relating to education and technology. A worldwide recognized committee of experts will evaluate each project, and, if selected, will pass through the four-month stage of “acceleration.” The acceleration will include mentoring, funding, visibility, networking, and other tools that will transform the original idea into a concrete solution.

The first project that will be accelerated is “Scholas Citizenship,” developed pro bono by Globant and Line 64. This project will create an online space where high school students can share their thoughts regarding civic and political topics. Its objective is to generate a personal approach to local issues and to allow students to find solutions within their own communities.

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Globant joined this global movement, which has reached tens of millions of students in over 180 countries.

During December, three groups of Globers organized an Hour of Code event in their cities:

 

  • CÓRDOBA: Maximiliano Ruiz, Andrea Wittouck, Santiago Tamagno, and Nancy Domínguez (Instituto Superior Santo Domingo).
  • CHACO: Facundo Mattof, Verónica Virgona, Cintia Lenkovich, Juan Delfino, Claudia Romero, Pablo Romano, Lucio Poveda, Juan Martín Giménez, Ariel Fernández, and Justo Vargas (Escuela N° 758 Barranqueras).
  • BUENOS AIRES: Sebastián Bassi and Virginia González (Escuela N° 3 “Esteban Echeverría”, D.E. 10).

 

We want to thank all our volunteers for their passion and we look forward to future Hour of Code events in more cities in 2015.
