Entrepreneurs Quote

”I am a computer science teacher and I am passionate about robots. I am part of the Star Wars generation, and I was able to share this passion with the children easily. So I came with the idea of creating a club which allows children, and why not, adults, to develop their creativity and to make things, from robots to scenarios for cartoons and comic strips”. Doris Nerbert – Atelier Kaya Tech SRL, for the online newspaper
