Girls from elementary schools doing programming and robotics? Yes, you read well, it's about girls participating in SPARKreatorice League all last school year, and now it's time for a great finale. What is this league? It is the project called SPARKreatorice aimed at promoting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) among elementary school girls. The entire project was carried out by the SPARK School Association with the support of the American Embassy in BiH, and companies NSoft and Sportradar. The project involved 200 students and 20 teachers from 20 elementary schools from Bosnia and Herzegovina. The lecturers from the Association crossed over 2000 kilometers to donate 200 mBot educational robots and passed knowledge and skills on programming and robotics to schoolchildren and teachers. The great finale was held on Saturday, 13 October 2018 in SPARK premises in Mostar. After inspirational speeches by IT girls Ivana Tipurić (NSoft) and Amra Dautbegović (IT Girls), the great finale of SPARKreatorice League officially started! Forty girls competed, but these three girls best solved their tasks: 1. place and mBlock Ultimate 2.0 was won by Petra Miloš (OŠ Kiseljak) 2. place and mBlock Airblock was won by Hena Dragović (OŠ Velešićki heroji Sarajevo) 3. place and mBlock Starter Kit was won by Džejla Malanović (OŠ Suljo Ćilić Jablanica). Congratulations to the winners, but also to all the other young SPARKreatorice girls and their mentors. SPARK was once again a gathering place for exchanging knowledge and experience and acquiring numerous acquaintances.
