Year-End Holiday Round Up: Workshops/Courses/ Camps to Sign Up For
For those who are stumped: either with too many ideas on what to do (and not enough annual leave to go around) OR too few productive ideas to keep yourself and your school-going kids occupied, here’s the round-up you’re looking for. Brought to you by the Tueetor Team and our Premium Partners #Enjoyyourholidays #Makememories #HolidayWorkshops Did I mention there’re courses for adults too? (Compiled and edited by Cecilia Leong.)
Advancedata Network’s “Into the Future (Robots & Humans)” Robotic Learning Journey will enable coder-wannabes to perform an interactive session with smart robots. Not only will students be given a basic understanding of the world of programming, but they will also learn how programmers are able to bring about a sustainable future. They will also learn how much of the world actually depends on Artificial Intelligence.
Students will then get to learn to code their first programming script. The academy’s instructors will then teach them to write down the concept and understand the logic behind each implementation.
Lastly, all these sessions will put into the practical test on programming their own robots. They will be able to physically experience how does logic in the programming language affect the output via the responding robots they have built. Activities and tasks will correspond to the level of difficulty/age-group of the students, with the holiday courses being completed in a progressive manner. Hence a very user-friendly course even for kids with absolute zero knowledge of programming.
Class size will be kept small of up to 10 students per session. This is to ensure all students will be given equal opportunity to explore the tools being taught and also integrate their programming with the robots they build.
Beginner class – $250 + 1 Free Smart Robot
Advance Class – $250 + 1 Free Smart Robot
