A creative room stocked with new technological equipment for the children to learn more about science and technology. Based on the determination of Nadia, Ruzischka, and the commitment of all the teachers, parents, and efforts put into the creation of the project, the government, through FUTURA, pinched in to complete this dream. FUTURA is an entity that focuses on innovation in education. Together with FUTURA, teachers Ruzischka and Nadia led the project's design and started approaching partners to make their dream come true. What was a dream in 2021 became a reality in 2022.

The Tech Lab offers the students and teachers a room in which they can bring education to the next level. As part of the "train the trainers" project, the teachers can use this Tech Lab to explore and share knowledge.

The Prime Minister also mentioned the innovation gap in our government, society, and schools. In our community, people sometimes resist technology and changes. Technology is rapidly advancing and plays a prominent role in the future development of any country. Our children will get jobs that require the capacity to work with advanced technology, which may not even exist. Technology rapidly advances, and innovative ones may be around the corner, and children should be ready for future jobs.
