Amman, Jordan, June 30, 2019-- The King Hussein Foundation and RoboGarden, the educational game-based platform, signed an agreement to develop technology savvy children and youth by introducing a fun, -easy, blended learning approach. RoboGarden’s programming and coding platform integrated with the King Hussein Foundation’s Jubilee Institute’s STEAM (Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) education program, will contribute to developing future digitally-skilled knowledge workers and qualified STEAM educators.

“Technology, and coding in particular, is the language of the future. Through our Jubilee STEAM Program, we want to access this opportunity to a wide age group, from 5-22 years of age, in Jordan and the region. Our partnership with RoboGarden will allow us to motivate students to learn through play, preparing them for tomorrow’s job market”, commented Ms. Hana Mitri Shahin, Executive Director of the King Hussein Foundation.

“Coding is the language of the future and, we need to equip the new generations with the right skill sets to meet the growing needs of the world., As KHF has always encouraged and challenged students to bring out the best in them through the Jubilee Institute, We are confident that KHF is the right partner in Jordan to help equip the students with the right programming and soft skills needed. Our platform converts training of logical thinking, the essence of program coding, into a joyful and more engaging way to ensure the maximum benefit of the students”, commented Hisham Al Maghrabi, RoboGgarden partner.

“The Canadian companies always look at Jordan first as their first country of choice in the Middle East when it comes to Education and ICT as Jordan has always been a leader with its human capital in these two sectors and neighboring countries have always been benefiting from the Jordanian experience”, Commented Mr. Omar Abbasi – Trade Commissioner at the Government of Canada.

The King Hussein Foundation (KHF) fosters equitable access to socio-economic, educational, health, and cultural opportunities for women, youth, and the marginalized.
