They’re given the tools and knowhow they need to reach their maximum potential, and they chart their own learning path through hands-on activities, workshops and projects.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Tumo Center for Creative Technologies in Yerevan, Armenia.

Marie Lou Papazian, Tumo’s CEO welcomed the visitors and guided Chancellor Merkel on a tour of Tumo’s headquarters in Yerevan. A short video about the visit is available at TUMO’s youtube channel below.

The delegation met students involved in studies in game development, animation and other topics, and were also presented results in robotics, programming, design and more.
