The official launch of Krypto for Kids Caribbean:
Starting September 8, 2022, our local team in Barbados will be inviting global partners for our livestream debut and selecting 50 scholars from schools across Barbados to participate in the Future of Barbados Blockchain Scholars Program. Participants will receive a transformative educational opportunity including financial literacy, blockchain technology, digital creative art and music instruction, and curricula that will expose them to both deep tech and digital assets guided by world experts and thought leaders. Confirmed participants will receive full details by our dedicated team and instructors. Once selected, they will be joining a global community unlike any other committed to nurturing brilliant minds leading the Caribbean in unprecedented directions and invited to participate in ongoing webinars and in-person activities depending on their interests. The participants of our very first cohort of Krypto for Kids Caribbean are leaders who have lived through a global pandemic, share common bonds of curiosity, and have crossed digital boundaries faster than any other generation. Everyone who signs up for our livestream will be invited to continue learning on our dedicated web-based platform where they can continue learning from brilliant minds from around the globe.

2:30 p.m.- 5:30 p.m : Blockchain Mining Rig Construction Interactive Session || Goddard Room– Cave Hill School of Business
Students will work closely with Maxim Sindall on building computers from parts which will be then used to mine cryptocurrency. They will not only learn about the fundamentals of how their computer works but how to assemble and disassemble devices that they use every day. Digital money requires digital devices. In this session, we will demystify what is blockchain, what are digital assets, how do we use this new technology but more importantly what are the basic building blocks that are so simple that even kids can use.
Registration for this session is restricted to 50 students that are pre-registered. It will be filmed and photographed throughout the afternoon.
