Join KREATON in Brezno: a workshop on creativity and financial literacy for Ukrainian and Slovak students!

Junior Achievement Slovensko is organizing an event dedicated to creativity and financial literacy and invites school teams to participate in a unique educational workshop - KREATON Brezno, which will take place on May 23, 2024 in the SKY BAR space of the Double Red Cars Museum in Brezno. Registration will start at 8:00 a.m. and the workshop will last from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

At the workshop, students will be able to take part in creative competitions, working in mixed teams consisting of three Ukrainian and three Slovak students. The teams' task is not only to show their creativity in solving the tasks, but also to try their hand at creating simple financial calculations and designing an advertising poster for their projects.

The workshop is designed for students in grades 7, 8, and 9 of primary schools and grades 1 and 2 of secondary schools of all types (according to the Slovak education system). Ukrainian students should be able to communicate in Slovak.

Participation in the workshop is free of charge. Lunch and light refreshments will be provided on site for all participants. Students do not need a laptop or any technical means to work. The competition does not require any special artistic or economic knowledge. The three most successful teams will be awarded prizes.

In addition to the main event, after the program, students and their teachers will have the opportunity to voluntarily attend a one-hour excursion to the Double Red Cars museum, which will take place from 15:00 to 16:00. The entrance ticket and guide services are paid by Junior Achievement Slovakia. Please indicate in the registration form whether you are interested in this event.
