Refugees Deeply present this photo essay, portraying Asem Hasna, a self-taught 22 year old Syrian who, having lost a leg in conflict, is working to pass on the “science of the future” to refugee children. Asem has been giving children who have experienced trauma and conflict another chance, teaching them how to build DIY robots, database programming and app development. “We see refugees as street-smart, resilient and risk-taking people. If we get things right, they are pioneers who can become valuable resources for Europe, socially, culturally as well as financially,”  says Anne Kjaer Riechert, managing director of the digital school.
