Swaroop Banerjee, COO, Zee LIVE, said: “We create engagements through Zee LIVE that matter to the everyday lives of our viewers and consumers. We are excited to bring the nation's first science and technology learning programme for kids. We spent the last year researching the incredible speed of adoption of technology by young digital natives, the increasing evolution of screens, sensor and voice-based technology in their lives combined with how they use it. What makes KODE exciting is the quality of engagement, from robotics to lab sciences, drone tech to coding.”
Randhir Kumar, Founder & CEO, BasicFirst said, “Solving students' doubts via technology is the ultimate objective of our company. We have created a few innovative path-breaking tech-oriented products to address student's problems, queries and doubts. Our association with Zee LIVE (KODE) is based on a problem-solving approach intended to bring the passion for digital young minds which would create a more justifiable academic future for students. Sci-tech fests like KODE would certainly help students to generate interest among digital aspects to discover more about Science and Technology.”
Based on the latest UN data, these digital natives will make up 32% of the global population by 2020. Today, they are the most connected, educated and sophisticated generation of the world. 98% have used technology as part of their formal education, up to 5 devices are in use at a time and social media checked almost 100 times a day. Also, 82% want to take up a profession that enables them to work with cutting-edge technology. With the digital revolution at its peak, such engagements are vital so that young children keep up with the ever-evolving pace of life.
