The Channel Creates Digital Technology for Indonesian Young Generation
Techpolitan focuses on young people as agents of change who have great potential to capitalize on the momentum of the industrial era 4.0. Techpolitan will provide classes that focus on fostering youth talent in the field of digital technology. The class that Techpolitan presents involves collaboration with parties who are experienced in digital technology such as GeeksFarm, and Sangnila Arts Academy. Some of these classes include 3D Design & Animation classes, Game & Design Making classes, and Coding classes.
Not only focusing on theory, the results of the creations produced from the classes provided will also be realized. For example, 3D Design creations by Techpolitan students can be realized in real form through 3D printer technology, so the students can hold or touch the fruit of their labors directly.
“Techpolitan plays a role that focuses on preparing young people as a forerunner of Indonesia’s future progress. With synergistic collaboration with digital industry players involved in Techpolitan classes, the results we hope for are the emergence of young innovators in the field of digital technology that contribute to the advancement of Indonesia’s digital science and technology, ” explained Irvan.
