The “Future Laboratories”, an innovative program for the development of innovation in Polish schools, is gaining momentum. During the Impact’22 conference in Pozna, up to PLN 70 million additional educational materials and tools were announced to help teachers and students in the most effective use of modern hardware and software.

The “Labs of the Future” program was initiated by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Minister of Education and Science Przemyslaw Czarnik, and aims to provide all Polish schools in the coming years with modern equipment to develop the talents and interests of children and youth. The project, implemented in cooperation with NGOs and entrepreneurs, is the basis for building a modern digital society.

The idea of ​​the program corresponds to the main message of Impact’22 – one of the most prestigious and important conferences in Central and Eastern Europe, which on May 11-12 attracts thousands of experts, businessmen, scientists and representatives of the management public to Poznan. No wonder, then, that one of the rooms on the event site has been transformed into a private ‘future lab’, where workshops for students and teachers as well as meetings with the project’s creators have been organized. The region was visited, among others, by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Mark Brzezinski – the US ambassador to Poland, who learned about the possibilities offered by the equipment already equipped in several thousand schools across Poland. The experience gained during the workshops will turn into materials that will be used by schools across the country.

“The government has allocated a record amount of PLN 1.2 billion for the most modern, high-quality equipment – 3D printers, microcontrollers, recording equipment and software. However, we remember that education is mainly people, so we will allocate additional funds to create resources to support schools, not Not only in terms of equipment, but also in terms of content” – She said Justina Orlowska, delegated by the Prime Minister for Government Technology and delegated to the Minister of Education and Science for Digital Transformation. – “Hence the decision to allocate 70 million PLN for training, digital tools or other resources so that the potential of the equipment delivered to the facilities is used to the maximum,” – she added.
