3,424 students from six educational institutions in the south of the country will have access to state-of-the-art digital laboratories, where classes and various activities will be held from 1st of September 2022.

The investment is about 150,000 EUR, used for purchasing 60 notebooks, 60 computers, as well as six web cameras, interactive whiteboards and multifunctional printers. The six educational institutions were selected after submitting applications to a competition initiated within the „Tekwill in every school” programme.

Thus, the institutions in the south of the country that will benefit from new digital laboratories are: „Iulia Hașdeu” College from the Cahul town; the Gymnasium from Enichioi village, Cantemir district; „Mihai Eminescu” Theoretical High School from the Cantemir town; „Dimitrie Cantemir” Theoretical High School from the Cahul town; as well as the „Mihai Eminescu” Theoretical High School from the Leova town and Cahul Medicine College.

The digital laboratories will be fully equipped for studying the subjects of the future, while providing access to information technologies for students who do not have a computer at home.

Each of the six new digital laboratories will have an area of approximately 50 m2 and will be divided into five distinct areas. The teachers’ area will be equipped with a large screen and an interactive whiteboard, and the students’ area will be equipped with 20 laptops and computers, as well as web cameras. At the same time, along with a printing area and a storage area, each laboratory will have a creative area with a blackboard and comfortable armchairs.

In the new academic year, 19 new digital laboratories will be opened all over the country. They will be created within the „Tekwill in every school” programme, developed in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Research, with the support of development partners: USAID Moldova, Sweden, EU4Moldova and UNDP Moldova. The goal of the project is the transformation of education in the Republic of Moldova and the growth of new generations ready to respond to national and global socio-economic challenges.

In the 2021-2022 academic year, 16 educational institutions across the country benefited from digital laboratories.

„EU4Moldova: Start-up City Cahul” is implemented by ATIC, with the financial assistance of the European Union in partnership with Sweden.
