Who We Are
Changing the Future of STEM
Dwengo builds international networks and organises teaching activities in the world. By international activities we achieve worldwide collaboration between students and teachers in the field of computer science and robotics. Through experience we found that education in social-disadvantaged countries has other needs and different challenges than those in Western countries. By working together with local partners, we are able overcome these challenges to achieve our goals. Our goal is to plant seeds and provide the necessary nutrients by working locally to make the growth of a global network viable.
Our Beginnings Since 2009
Dwengo is a young and dynamic non-profit organization founded in 2009 by six Belgian engineers who support everyone who starts with micro-controllers. By means of online tutorials, support and hands-on workshops, Dwengo started to reach out for schools in Belgium. Nowadays, Dwengo has internationally expanded its activities and wants to reach out for everyone on the globe, in particular to social-economical disadvantaged regions where technology cannot be accessed easily. To do this, Dwengo tries to help already existing local communities by offering them knowledge and expertise.
Demystifying the wonders of robotics and AI by
Providing workshops for students and collaborating with teachers and volunteers around the globe and via train-the-trainer sessions we enable them to bring our hands-on workshops to the students. Our main goals are:
- Measuring the impact: tracking # participants and project sustainability
- Identifying the challenges with STEM education and how to overcome them
- Knowledge transfer to socially-economically disadvantaged students
- Establishing a new global sustainable community of teachers and volunteers
- Bringing multiple cultures together by organizing a yearly robot week
