flowChildren between the ages of four and six will have the opportunity to learn first-hand about the exciting world of technology, as telecommunications provider Flow hosts its inaugural Tech Kids Project.

Forming part of the company’s Christmas campaign, the initiative takes place on Saturday, December 19th, at Flow’s flagship retail store on Old Street, between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Participants will be awarded prizes for demonstrating their creativity in the design of Christmas cards, along with demonstrating their competency in using computer devices and online programmes.

“The unique value of technology as a learning tool is no longer in question, and we know that it can change the way children think, learn and how they interact with their peers and adults,” said Flow’s General Manager Jeffrey Baptiste.

“Just over a decade ago, only a handful of schools had computers. Now, the use of technology in the classroom has become very important with children showing comfort and confidence in using computers”.

During the in-store event, the young participants will each be provided with a promotional tablet and they will compete for prizes in the popular Temple Run online game, while their Christmas cards will be posted to Facebook for Flow customers and friends to vote for their favourite.

Winners will then return to the store on Christmas Eve to receive their prizes and awards.

The local event has been scheduled to coincide with similar activities in Jamaica, Barbados and St. Kitts & Nevis.
