Summary

InventCAT will be a global education initiative that aims to connect schools and institutes in the territory to promote cultural exchanges, taking advantage of technologies for creative learning and innovative digital tools (such as programming environments, maker education resources and manufacturing digital, etc.). The idea is to promote the collaborative work of children, who will be grouped in mixed virtual teams (with participants from different schools and institutes in each team) and who will research each year a social issue (human rights, gender equality, etc. ), ending each edition of the project with the co-creation, production and publication on the Internet of interactive digital stories on that topic.
