Dear Maira, thank you for the mention, I am happy to hear the idea submission from my team inspired your idea. I was interested to know how technology education is done in your school-- are they taught as a computer class to teach digital skills? Or is technology being incorporated into main subject classes? How are the instructors (my understanding is that they are Comsats University volunteers?) vetted and stay committed to the project? Best wishes on your project!
