The partnership which has changed the concept of education

If one seeks to learn, he or she should do it from the best. Children from their teachers, mentees from their mentors, or businesses from their partners. Seeing the first-class professional education at Harvard University, Turing Society decided to take their lessons and spread it around. In 2017 the organization got an official letter from Douglas Llyod, the Senior Preceptor in Computer Science at Harvard University, which made them exultant. It announced that the organization had started a wonderful partnership between CS50 at Harvard University and Turing Society, which is one of its kinds.

For those who do not know yet about Turing Society — you should start googling it. Once you hear the name, you wish you could have learned about them before. A few years ago, the company originated as a startup, however, now they are a fast-growing organization, established its international boundaries from Lithuania to the Netherlands, Mexico, and possibly beyond.

It all started with the co-founder Tomas Moska, who held his first event for those who wanted to learn web development. A post on Facebook about the event led 200 people to come and be easily taught programming. After the gathering, Tomas Moska hit on a splendid idea to have a community where everyone could learn coding no matter what the main study field they have. So off he went to the other co-founders Lukas Kaminskis and Benas Sidlauskas who were immediately mesmerized by Tomas’ flashing eyes of excitement to build this type of society.

The new beginning started with three chapters: School, Students, and Solutions. The first one, Turing School, plunge into the deep waters of present-day technology and let children understand it better than, perhaps, they do. The most intriguing fact is that Turing School is one of the few organizations, having a partnership with the CS50 course at Harvard University, which lets this chapter to provide the most qualitative computer science programs to its students. From the introduction to computer science to CS50 Web development, or game (creation) studies. All students from 5th to 12th grade can apply to the extracurricular activities and start their broadening of knowledge in the most innovative IT class, funded by the European Union, in the Baltic States from this September. Furthermore, the youngsters will have the possibility to follow the path of developers after the program in a real company. Besides, the most talented will get places to study at Turing College, fully automated university-level degree studies, created by market professionals and academia, soon. The second one, Turing Students, gathers the youth for quizzing the crucial importance of the understanding of today’s innovations. And finally, at Turing Solutions work the best tech developers, who can even bring the hardest projects to life. As you may have noticed, Turing Society has created the whole ecosystem, where everyone can start from being a child and newbie at programming, and end at working in a real company.

In the letter, Douglas Lloyd said that “we are very excited about the possibilities this collaboration will bring, and look forward to working with you to bring CS and high-quality computer science instruction to communities around the globe.” So is Turing Society, as it celebrates one over another new person, project, or partnership. Especially the one with Harvard University, which let them this all happen and bring the quality of studies in other countries. The opportunity to work with the best in the education field will allow Turing Society to scale in teaching technology and prepare the rising generations to the inevitable future of innovations.
