With the hope of enhancing this qualitative aspect of the education system, SLInspire has put forth a successful seminar series to induce interest in technology-related subjects and further on tertiary education.
The seminar series for school students was conducted at the University of Jaffna on the 6th and 7th of March 2020 with the presence of Mr. M. Rupeekshan as the resource person. Rupeekshan Maheswaran is an undergraduate in the field of Computer Science at University of Jaffna and also works as a Senior Content Developer at Zero Gravity. He, being the Channel Head at MurcLive.com, has performed as the Secretary of Tamil Literary Association of Royal College.
These series were mainly focused on giving necessary information for Ordinary Level students of Jaffna about tertiary educational opportunities available in Sri Lanka. Also, Mr. Gobinthiran Kulendran who is the founder and UX designer at Huex Studios (Pvt) Ltd and Mr. Abiseban Pirapaharan a frontend developer at Huex Studios (Pvt) Ltd dedicated their efforts as speakers on the second day of this seminar series to enlighten the audience more about state universities, UGC recognized state and private institutions and also about the opportunities that align with Sri Lanka Qualification Framework (SLQ) and National Vocational Qualification framework (NVQ). Seminars were conducted in both English and Tamil languages for the convenience of the students. The ultimate purpose of the seminar series was also supported by Mr. Pathmanadan Thujimayuran from the University of Moratuwa as a speaker.
The second day of the seminar series was held in parallel with the exhibition, ‘Science Education for Bright Future’, organized by the Faculty of Science, University of Jaffna. Despite all, the seminar series concluded with the cooperation of volunteers from SLInspire and mostly with the cherished minds of the young students of Jaffna.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1579″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1577″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
