Please explain how this Mission will help accomplish the above Intent:
The Optimism Tour is a traveling program that will tour the main universities in Peru for a period of 2 months. During this time, we will conduct a series of blockchain-related events and activities to foster learning and collaboration among university students from engineering, business, marketing, medical and arts faculties. These events will include talks, hands-on workshops, panel discussions and networking sessions, about the Optimism ecosystem.
These clubs will serve as communities of students interested in blockchain, where they can share knowledge, collaborate on projects and explore research and development opportunities in the blockchain field.
At the end of the program, we will organize an inter-university hackathon where students from all participating blockchain clubs will be able to put into practice their skills and knowledge acquired during the program. The hackathon will be an exciting and challenging competition that will allow students to work in teams and develop innovative solutions based on the Optimism network where we will provide prizes in Optimism tokens to accelerate the use of the network within the Peruvian university community.
What makes your Alliance well-suited to execute this Mission?
This is the first time we participate in an Optimism application, but we have seen the support that optimism provides to communities around the world and we do not want Peru to be the exception, we want to share the mission and opportunities that the OP ecosystem is providing to our community of developers and young creators.
Andino has been contributing a lot to the Peruvian blockchain ecosystem for more than a year and a half now, providing a friendly ecosystem to learn, develop and undertake emerging technologies such as blockchain.
We provide resources, educational opportunities and nationwide competitions on blokchain such as university hackathons for men and women as we seek gender equality in technology.
We are a community of over 800 active members who hold frequent weekly, monthly and annual events such as meetups, workshops and hackathons in Peru.
We have the support of leading universities in education in our country:
- Universidad de Ciencias Aplicadas
- University of the Pacific
- Pontifical Catholic University of Peru
- University of Engineering and Technology
Please list a critical milestone. The critical milestone should be a measure of whether you’ve made best efforts to execute what is outlined in this proposal or not. If you fail to achieve your critical milestone, your grant may be clawed back.
Please list the critical milestone(s) that should be tracked to determine if you should receive your grant in one year:
- Build blockchain clubs in universities.
- Organization of 4 meetups in different universities.
- Organization of an inter-university hybrid hackathon in Peru.
How should Token House delegates measure progress towards this Mission: These should focus on progress towards completion. Including expected completion dates for each.
Please review the following document: Important Milestones.
How should badgeholders measure impact upon completion of this Mission? These should be focused on performance and may be used by badgeholders to assess your Misson’s impact in the next round of RetroPGF.
KPI #1: Student participation: We will measure student participation in each program event, including the number of attendees and the level of engagement during the activities. This will allow us to assess the interest and acceptance of the program among students.
KPI#2: Project development: We will measure the number and quality of projects developed by blockchain clubs during the program. This will allow us to evaluate the level of active participation of the students and their ability to apply the concepts learned in practical projects.
KPI#3: Student feedback: We will collect feedback and evaluations from participating students to assess their satisfaction with the program and gather ideas for future improvements. This will help us adapt and improve the program in future iterations.
