The Razer, the global lifestyle brand for gamers, has just announced a collaboration in Brazil with TECHERS, renowned school of technology focused on teaching computer science and robotics. The initiative provides for the offer of 12 TECHERS scholarships to young students from the municipal network of Uberlândia/MG enrolled in regular education, and the donation of 24 high-performance Razer peripherals for use in the classroom.  

“We support the TECHERS project because we believe in education and technology as transforming agents in the lives of young people. State-of-the-art equipment will give students an extra stimulus to continue dedicating themselves to their personal training and to prepare for the job market. In addition, it will allow TECHERS to further increase the support it already offered to these young people,” said Victor Martins, sales manager for Razer in Brazil. 

In the market since 2020, TECHERS uses a unique methodology focused on Collaboration, Looking, Development and Experimentation (CODE) to teach robotics and computer science, and already offered 12 annual scholarships to low-income students. With the collaboration of Razer, the goal is to expand the project.

“Despite the great digital transformation that we are experiencing in the pandemic, we are aware that this does not represent equity in access to technology. We want more people to be included in the digital world, because only then will we have a fairer country, connected and capable of the new skills required by the job market”, he said. Danielle Akemi, co-founder of the school. 

For Razer and TECHERS, collaboration means opening new horizons to young people impacted by the project and a way to prepare them both personally and professionally. The new TECHERS social class will be named in honor of Razer and classes will begin in the second half of May, with twelve students already.
