One year after its official selection at the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), the Ideas Box along with Libraries Without Borders was invited to the WISE Summit Learning Labs from November 3rd to 5th in Doha, Qatar.
The Ideas Box was exhibited for 2,000 participants coming from 120 different countries, including numerous specialists, experts, and key decision makers in the education field. We had the honor of counting the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama among the guests. At WISE to promote girls’ education around the world, she visited the Ideas Box and had the opportunity to talk with a group of students who participated in activities organized inside.
Over three days, around sixty Indian and Qatari students aged 11 to 13 learned the basics of code with workshops set up by the Voyageurs du Code (or the Code Travelers) and with other activities held in the Box. WISE was also an important opportunity to meet other participants and potential partners.
