At the core of the learning center, is a fusion of technology and design. TUMO Beirut extends self-learning activities to teenagers, alternating between hands-on workshops and project labs led by industry leaders from across the globe. The center’s board members include leading current and former executives from leading companies such as Pixar, Twitter, Uber, Disney, and NVIDIA.
TUMO Beirut has set up a cloud-based platform with an adaptive online interface, prompting teens to create their own learning journey using technology and art in a collaborative environment. Going one step further, TUMO teens can use the TUMO Path to access the educational program that allows them to try out 10 design and tech areas, from coding and 3D modeling to animation and music composition, and discover which combination of them they find most inspiring.
With Lebanon rich with talent and rising in the ranks of technological innovation, the center’s overarching goal is to prepare teenagers to be more competitive in their respective futures, gaining hands-on knowledge in areas that interest them.
Kicking off at the beginning of 2019 and extending into March of this year, top tier professionals from Stanford, Lego and Nickelodeon will be offering Machine Learning, Robotics and Toy Design labs to aspiring minds.
