Education of the highest level
In 2011 Platinum Bank initiated an educational contest “Triple Nine Education” for the educational institutions of Ukraine.
The contest participants had to elaborate the optional lesson in the subject “Basic economy” for the 6th-7th grades or 8th-11th grades with the usage of informational technology. The winners get a computer room as a prize: laptops and multifunctional devices (printer-scanner-copier device).
Besides, they get a set of educational events from the partner companies: Microsoft Ukraine conducts educational webinars, and the employees of Platinum Bank conduct lessons in financial literacy “Platinum Posidelki [Platinum Parties]”.
From 2011 to 2013 49 computer classes were opened in Vinnytsya, Poltava, Kherson, Zhytomyr, Dniepropetrovsk, Chernivtsi, Rivne, Soumy, Kyiv, Lougansk, Volyn, Zaporizhzhya, Odessa, Ternopil, Donetsk, Mykolayiv, Lviv and Cherkassy oblasts of Ukraine, as well as in the AR of Crimea. And the winners in total got 440 laptops and 44 MFDs.
We hope that this contest will help pupils and teachers, as now knowledge is passed on with the help of modern computer technologies and becomes more accessible and interesting.
