GFG Foundation and LIBERTY Galati to launch the Summer Robotics Club

GFG Foundation and LIBERTY Galați will launch the Summer Robotics Club, a new educational project for their employees’ children.

During Children’s Month, GFG Foundation and LIBERTY Galați are offering an amazing opportunity to employees’ children, a fun club with robotics courses which will run across the summer holidays. The course aims to prepare the young people for the future and develop their passion for innovative subjects to complement their school curricula.

Launched this year as a pilot project, 120 children of LIBERTY Galati employees will have the chance to participate in the free robotics courses during July and August. The first four groups will see up to 50 children coming together to study robotics for four weeks in July, while the second groups will study in August, with each child attending at least 8 classes on robotics. In the workshops, children will also get the opportunity to build various robot models using intuitive software and LEGO pieces.

Ajay Aggarwal, President of LIBERTY Steel Group Europe and Chairman of the Board of Directors of LIBERTY Galati, said: “We are launching a new project for the first true digital native generation. Their lives are already becoming dominated by technology, social networks and streaming services, so we wanted to offer our employees’ children an opportunity to further their interest in these new technologies and provide a suitable framework for developing their skills in the fields of the future, such as robotics. Family and Change are two of our core values so we are very happy to invest in the development of our employees’ children. Parents in LIBERTY Galati now have the opportunity to register their children at the Summer Robotics Club so that their children could start their first lessons next month.

Georgina Crumpton, General Manager of the GFG Alliance and GFG Foundation, said: „We are committed to investing in our future generations and so we are delighted to announce the launch of our Summer Robotics Club, which is part of the LIBERTY Galati and GFG Foundation’s series of educational programmes that focus on developing essential life skills and technical capabilities, especially in the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) fields. This programme is very exciting and will be very useful for the new generation, as their future will be driven by yet more amazing changes in technology.”

Recently, GFG Foundation announced the second class in the dual education programme at Paul Dimo Technological High School, a programme that combines theoretical knowledge taught by teachers with practical activities carried out with the help of LIBERTY Galati mentors and offers a UK accredited qualification. Also, GFG Foundation Romania and LIBERTY Galati are showing their support for the Galati community and the education of the city’s younger generation by attending the City Hall in the Gala of Excellence in Education, contributing to the rewarding of 800 students, from 5th to 12th classes, who finished the school year 2022-2023 with an overall grade of 10. The academic performance and development of young people in Galati is a key priority for GFG Foundation and LIBERTY, which in recent years have initiated multiple projects dedicated to support the abilities of students and graduates of schools with a technological profile.

Founded by Sanjeev Gupta and his wife Nicola, the GFG Foundation is a charitable organisation that aims to develop educational programmes that give young people an insight into industry through real-world experiences, while developing communication skills, self-confidence and interpersonal skills. Established in the UK in 2017 and launching in Romania in August 2021, GFG Foundation works with education partners to help thousands of young people through science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) programmes to develop entrepreneurial skills and identify opportunities in local communities.
