-We want to encourage the children to think outside the box, he continues.

The children divide the days between science, art, sport and drama. In the Robotics class they learn about coding and constructing small machines. The room next door is Science class going on. Basha’er, a chemist teacher from Polytechnic University in Hebron, is assisting some boys and girls to make a hydraulic powered arm. She has the children’s full attention.

-I’m volunteering at the camp these weeks. I was myself at techno camp when I was a child, therefore I know what impact it can have, Basha’er says.

In the adjacent rooms other kids are attending drama and art sessions. The height of the summer camp is a visit to the Science House in Ramallah.
