Mehackit was founded in 2014. Our mission is to make technology skills more equal by developing educational solutions and learning content. Today we are focusing in developing Mehackit Atelier, an online environment for teaching and learning, to help and inspire educators world wide. The first modules of Atelier were launched in Autumn 2018 and new content modules will be added as they are produced!
