Belatrix hosts Tech Day to encourage students discover the world of coding

October 15, 2019

Belatrix Software held its annual Tech Day to support promising engineers

Belatrix Software, a leading software development company, held its annual Tech-Day program in Mendoza, Argentina. The initiative consists of two separate events, one held at the National Technological University that gathered around 30 scholarship students, and a second one at the Champagnat University held for 90 high-schoolers.

Every year, Belatrix organizes this program to promote IT careers among youngsters. The initiative is part of the organization’s efforts to help local communities and offer high-quality education to unprivileged children. In 2016, Belatrix joined FONBEC, a local non-profit organization, with the objective to offer scholarships to outstanding students who don’t have the economic resources to complete their education programs. In order to continue helping them develop their professional path, Belatrix invites them to participate in the Tech Day, where they get a closer look at technology and programming.

During the events, students used Scratch and App Inventor, both programs of the MIT Media Lab which aim to introduce people to the world of coding. These programs enable young students to create animation, games, and applications for smartphones in a simple and fun way while developing skills in systematic reasoning and creative thinking.

The Tech Day events are part of Belatrix’s commitment to demystify STEM-related careers. There are still misconceptions about studying software engineering, and what it means for a person’s future career. However, the field offers countless possibilities, helping people develop creative thinking and problem-solving skills.

Besides hosting the Tech Day, Belatrix carries out other activities to encourage youngsters to pursue a technology-focused career. We regularly invite students to visit our offices and support initiatives such as the Girls Programming Club. Contributing to bringing down gender barriers in technology plays a role not only in increasing the number of women in STEM careers but also in addressing the shortage of technical talent.
