Deneyap Technology Workshops were launched within the scope of the Technology Stars of the Future program in July 2017 under the Turkish Technology Team Foundation (T3 Foundation) with the aim of raising the engineers, technology entrepreneurs and technology leaders of the future for a fully independent and strong Türkiye.
The main purpose of the Deneyap Technology Workshops is to train young individuals with high technology production competence, who will be the driving force of the National Technology Initiative, which we consider indispensable for the development of our country. We believe that our young people, who have interest and talent in this field, have the potential to achieve great things with sufficient opportunities and the right direction, and we know that there are young people in Türkiye who can be future scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs. We are moving forward to support them on their way to be productive and innovative individuals who contribute to the development of our country.
The educational model of Deneyap Technology Workshops is for students; it is designed to help them gain skills such as entrepreneurship, creative thinking, critical thinking, solving complex problems, effective communication and teamwork. Students are selected as a result of a 2-stage exam, e-exam and practice exam, and receive 36-month free training in 11 different technology areas. In the e-exam, students are asked questions on mathematics, science, algorithms and current knowledge. In the practice exam, students are expected to present their projects within the framework of the given theme, express themselves and present their prototypes to the jury within the specified time. Our middle school and high school students which are selected, will receive free training on 11 topics including Design and Production, Robotics and Coding, Electronic Programming and Internet of Things, Materials Science and Nanotechnology, Software Technologies, Energy Technologies, Cyber Security, Mobile Application, Advanced Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Aviation and Space Technologies. During the 36-month training period, they receive technology training on 11 different topics for the first 24 months, and in the last 12 months, they get ready for National and International competitions by entering the Teaming Period. In this 3-year period, they gain competence in basic technologies, deepening in special interests, and ability to produce projects.
