Polyup at Barcelona’s Ifest ’17 with 7,000 Students and Teachers
On Thursday, November 30th, almost 6,000 students and more than 1,000 teachers gathered for the Ifest conference in Barcelona. The event aimed to inspire today’s youth and encourage them to solve the problems around them using scientific and technological solutions. In other words, it focused on giving young people the tools and inspiration to be the next generation of innovators. It was the perfect place to introduce Polyup!
I was invited to give a 10-minute pitch to introduce Polyup and its possibilities. It was a great experience, and Polyup was very well-received!
After the introductory pitch during the conference, we were given the opportunity to be part of the newsletter that will be sent to almost every school in Catalonia. This will bring a lot of feedback from all kinds of schools and backgrounds, and also provide schools with a Computational Thinking playground for the first time.
The official images are not out yet, but I will upload them as soon as I get them!
