Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

PS : Le texte en Français se trouve à la suite du texte en Anglais.

A problem :

In our countries, our students face a big dilemma:
"How do I choose my career when I don’t really know which field I love best? "
This problem comes from lack of fun and practical activities in the schools and their focus on theory. Students lose their natural interest and motivation and don’t really experience school in a way that would captivate and develop their curiosity.

Who are we?

We are a non-profit organization: Fikra Wa Basma (Our website : www.fikrawabasma.com )
We want to promote the practice of science and technology, and help educators and parents in their job, which is to get kids excited about discovery and learning.Our purpose to design workshops around various scientific and technological experiments, making science (in its broadest meaning) relevant and fun. 

The solution we Believe in :

Practice it -> Understand it -> Love it -> Be creative and innovate -> Leave your own imprint !
When you Deeply understand how things work, you tend to Love what you do. That leads to Creativity and innovation, and that is how you can contribute to society with an imprint of your own.

What's the Impact of FikraLab ?

FikraLab : A means to an end

FikraLab is a Fabrication Laboratory, which is a collaborative space that aims to democratize the access to digital technologies, and promotes collaborative innovation. 

With the same spirit, FikraLab’s goal is to empower people with the use of new prototyping technologies, spreading the spirit of creation and innovation by fostering an experiential learning culture among people of all ages in Arab countries. 
In this FabLab, people from all ages, will get to learn by doing, by sharing, and by concretizing their designs into reality.

What do we Need & What do You Get ?

What we need ?

We need the start-up capital that will enable us to establish the roots of this project :

-  Build the space in Casablanca where to start the FikraLab project.

-  Buy a 3D printer, a CNC Milling Machine, a Laser Cuttor, Soldering Stations, wire Benders.

Our funding goal :

Our first objective is the space : 5.500 $
But the desired goal is 10.000 $

By supporting the FikraLab project, you’re not just helping us build a ToyHouse, you’re allowing us to achieve our goals, to cultivate creativity, autonomy, critical thinking and innovation, within the young arab community. To quote Zoomal : “It is time to bring back Arab Creativity ! “

You will also get to receive some pretty cool gifts : Branded T-shirts and Mugs, and even 3D-printed objects (keychains for example)

Be an active agent of change !

Don't say you can't help us because you CAN !

A crowdfunding project is all about small contributions. You can give 10 $, or you can give 300$.
Otherwise, you can also help us by sharing our social media pages with your friends & family.
We need all the help we can get, in order to make this campaign successful.
You’re the best !

PS : Don't forget to choose your preferred design for the T-shirts and Mugs :

Un problème:

Dans notre pays, les étudiants font souvent face à un grand dilemme: 

Comment choisir ma carrière quand je ne sais pas vraiment quel domaine j'aime le plus?

Ce problème vient du manque d'activités amusantes et pratiques dans les écoles et de leur focalisation sur la théorie. Les étudiants perdent facilement leur intérêt naturel et leur motivation. Ils ne vivement pas à vraiment l'école d'une manière qui puisse captiver et développer leur curiosité.

Qui sommes-nous?

Nous sommes une organisation à but non lucratif: Fikra Wa Basma. (Notre site web : www.fikrawabasma.com )
Nous voulons promouvoir la pratique de la science et de la technologie, aider les éducateurs et les parents dans leur travail, qui est d'attiser la curiosité des enfants et adolescents et leur faire aimer l’apprentissage par la pratique . Nos ateliers s'articulent autour de diverses expériences scientifiques et technologiques, ce qui rend la science (dans son sens le plus large) pertinente et amusante.

La solution en laquelle nous croyons :

Pratiquer, pour comprendre, pour aimer, pour créer et innover et enfin, laisser sa propre empreinte. Quand vous comprenez profondément comment les choses fonctionnent, vous avez tendance à aimer ce que vous faites! Cela conduit à la créativité et l'innovation, et c’est la façon dont vous pouvez contribuer à la société avec une empreinte qui vous est propre.

L'Impact: FikraLab, un moyen pour arriver à une fin

FikraLab est un laboratoire de fabrication, un espace collaboratif qui vise à démocratiser l'accès aux technologies numériques, et favorise l'innovation collaborative.

Avec le même esprit, l'objectif de FikraLab est d'habiliter les gens à l'utilisation des nouvelles technologies de prototypage, diffusant ainsi l'esprit de la création et de l'innovation par l'intermédiaire de favoriser une culture de l'apprentissage expérientiel chez les personnes de tous les âges dans les pays arabes.

Dans ce FabLab, des gens de tous les âges, vont apprendre par la pratique et par le partage d'idées innovantes pour aboutir à une concrétisation de leurs conceptions en réalité.

Nos besoins et vos cadeaux :

Ce qu'il nous faut : 

Nous avons besoin du capital initial qui nous permettra d'établir les racines de ce projet qui se résument en:

- Construction de l'espace à Casablanca dans lequel nous pourrions lancer le projet de FikraLab.

- Acheter une imprimante 3D, une fraiseuse CNC, une découpe laser, du matériel de soudure, et de réalisation de circuits PCB.

Notre objectif de financement:

Notre premier objectif est l'espace: 5,500 $

Mais le but recherché est 10,000 $

En soutenant le projet FikraLab, vous ne nous aidez pas à construire une maison à jouets, vous nous permettez d'atteindre nos objectifs, de cultiver la créativité, l'autonomie, la pensée critique et l'innovation, dans la jeune communauté arabe. Pour citer Zoomal: «Il est temps de ramener la créativité arabe! "

Vous allez également recevoir des cadeaux plutôt cool: des T-shirts et des Mugs personnalisés, et même des objets imprimés 3D (porte-clés, par exemple)

Soyez un agent actif de changement!

Ne dites pas que vous ne pouvez pas nous aider, vous le POUVEZ !

L’essence d’un projet de crowdfunding réside dans les petites contributions. Vous pouvez donner 10 $, ou vous pouvez donner 300 $.

Sinon, vous pouvez également nous aider en partageant nos pages dans les réseaux sociaux avec vos amis et famille.

Nous avons besoin de toute l'aide que nous pouvons obtenir, afin de faire de cette campagne un succès.

Vous êtes le meilleur !
