An important cooperation has been established between the Ministry of Industry and Technology, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, TÜBİTAK and the Turkish Technology Team Foundation within the framework of the first 100-day Action Program of our Presidency for establishment of 100 Experimental Technology Workshops in 81 Cities. Deneyap Turkey was realized with the contributions of these four important institutions that contribute to the development of young people in Turkey, especially in technology.
Mission of Deneyap Turkey is to raise young individuals, who will be the driving force of the National Technology Initiative, which we consider indispensable for the development of our country with high technology production competence. We believe that our young people who are interested and talented in this field have a potential to achieve great things when they are given enough opportunities and right guidance, and we believe that our young people are capable of being scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs of the future. We aim to establish Deneyap Technology Workshops in 81 provinces to support these young people on their way to be productive and innovative individuals who contribute to the development of our country.
The training model of Deneyap Technology Workshops is designed to improve such skills as entrepreneurship, creative thinking, critical thinking, solving complex problems, effective communication and teamwork of students in 2 age groups. Our youth, in the beginning of secondary school and high school, receive 36-month free training on 11 topics such as Design and Production, Robotics and Coding, Electronic Programming and Internet of Things, Nanotechnology and Materials Science, Aviation and Space Technologies. During this 3-year period, they acquire such competencies as basic technology, progressing in their special fields of interest and producing projects.
Works are underway out to establish 36 Deneyap Technology Workshops in the following 27 provinces: Ankara, Aksaray, Aydın, Balikesir, Batman, Bingol, Bursa, Denizli, Diyarbakir, Erzincan, Giresun, Hatay, Istanbul, Karaman, Kars, Kayseri, Kırıkkale, Kilis, Kocaeli, Kütahya.
