ANNOUNCEMENT ON CHANGES OF ACTIVITIES IN KOSOVA MAKERS LEAGUE FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR 2019/2020

Taking into account the continuing risk to public health by COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the suspension of the teaching process by the Ministry of Education, Science & Technology  and the protective measures set to prevent the spread of the virus, we inform you about the changes and deadlines regarding the activities and projects of KOSOVA MAKERS LEAGUE.

KOSOVA MAKERS LEAGUE – OPEN

We have suspended the activities of KML OPEN – Robotics Competition until an indefinite period. In a two-week period, KML, in cooperation with the board of the BONEVET Foundation and the strategic partner IRIM in Croatia, will issue a new notice regarding the deadlines of the rounds of the competition, specifically for the third round (3), the fourth (4) and the organization of the physical round – the grand finale.

The participation of the KML OPEN winning team in the Regional Robotics Competition in Zagreb, Croatia – MakeX Croatian OPEN 2020 depends on our partner in Croatia. So far, they have reviewed the possibilities for organizing the competition in October 2020, and have announced that they will provide all the necessary information for the participants of the competition in time.

The participation in the World Robotics Competition in Guangzhou, China – MakeX 2020 will not be organized this year. Although the finalist team from KML OPEN will not be able to participate in MakeX 2020, there will be rewards for the finalists. We will try our best to reward the teams with awards of a similar nature as last season. 

KOSOVA MAKERS LEAGUE will choose another award for the finalists of the competition, either by offering school supplies or other technological equipment where the whole school can benefit, or by organizing a visit to an educational fair abroad for the team. The decision on the award will be made according to the time and situation in the upcoming months.

KOSOVA MAKERS LEAGUE – CREATIVE CHALLENGE

Since the project CREATIVE CHALLENGE – Technology Competition includes teams from high schools in Kosovo, the activities were scheduled to be completed by the end of May. However, all activities have been suspended since March 13, 2020.

According to the official school calendar, the teaching process for high schools ends in early June, so all activities within the CREATIVE CHALLENGE – Technology Competition will move to September 2020 – March 2021.

DIGITAL CITIZEN 2.0

In the Digital Citizen 2.0 project, it was foreseen that all educational workshops with the libraries included in the project to be realized in the middle of May.

However, we have planned a change. Educational workshops for public libraries will continue during the summer in the BONEVET spaces, once we return to normality.

Until the next notice, we ask you to stay at home and respect the preventive measures in order to jointly maintain public health.

Thank you for your understanding,
