TUMO is a free of charge program that compliments school education by giving children 21st century skills in technology and design.
The TUMO learning program is made up of self-learning activities, workshops and project labs that revolve around 14 learning targets from robotics and programming to filmmaking and music.
We give students the means to gain the knowhow that makes them unstoppable and become globally competitive and self-confident.
We need to efficiently provide the same opportunity to all students across Armenia and Artsakh
With matching TUMO Boxes serve students not only from their locations, but also from surrounding cities and villages. Throughout the year, students participate in the self-learning part of the TUMO program in the box, and also commute to the nearest TUMO center to participate in workshops and learning labs. TUMO boxes also host educational events, activating and enriching the community’s pedagogical and cultural life.
