July 30, 2018

Deputy Consul General Barbara Thomas and Şişli Mayor Hayri Inonu attended the pitch competition and closing ceremony of the Roma Rights Association’s “Local Code, Global Aims” project. With support from the U.S. Government and Şişli Municipality, these high school students attended workshops on design-oriented thinking, presentation techniques, business models, analysis techniques, and 3-D printing. They identified challenges in their communities and worked in groups to develop innovative solutions using technology. Each group presented their ideas to a jury, and the winners will be attending a Makers Fair in the Netherlands
