Have “the Alice Experience”
Jun 17, 2020 - Jun 17, 2020
18:00H - 20:00H
Participate in our gamified “Alice Experience” to learn firsthand about the developments in the digital sector over the years and how society has quickly adapted to the new technologies.
How are we going to do that? With a tour through the different points in Alice’s life thanks to an unknown gift-giver who will surprise her on her birthday. During the session, you’ll have to unblock screens, conduct tests and demonstrate your knowledge of the technological advances that have emerged over the years to discover who is sending Alice the birthday gifts.
During the workshop:
You’ll find out how technology has developed and the job opportunities that have arisen in each period
You’ll learn the skills and aptitudes needed to work in the digital sector
We’ll tell you about some of the resources that will allow you to take your first steps in this market
You’ll meet a person who has reconverted to the ICT sector firsthand so they can answer all your questions and help you take the leap
