Awesome to see this! I'll be sending some students your way

This certainly is a good news. How about primary schools? Can they also sign up to this? 


Hi @s_kabir_rab 

The program is only for higher education, those attending primary school are welcome to try the free Qlik Sense Business trial


Excellent initiative to spread the culture of data 😉


hi @Sarah_Miller, thanks for the confirmation. 1 month trial is great but afraid this wont solve the problem for the future. This is a data literacy initiative I am running at my son's school and part of that program, they load data to QS desktop from my game API for the kids (8-10 years old) and let them explore with data visualisations. School funding for these projects are limited and initiative is  being run in volunteer basis by me. I was planning to take the similar format and introduce these workshops to other local schools/clubs to encourage people about data literacy. However, losing access to the desktop client and lack of funding will drive this project in the path of other alternatives, which is the unfortunate reality of these things. 

I am going back to drawing board as I have no ways to serve the Qlik content to a wider audience for these type of use case as the cost falls on to me. I am happy to hear any alternatives you may have to help me along in this scenario. Happy to take this outside this forum and discuss it offline.
