Students will take on the concept of Artificial Intelligence from its core pillars up to coding and implementing Machine Learning models and programs. The course covers the technological advancements that enabled AI to become a reality, then moves on to exploring what AI is in depth, teaching students what differentiates this concept from the conventional programming that we are very familiar with today.
In this course, students learn about Raspberry Pi (a credit-card-sized computer), and how to program it with python language. Students also build a car robot using Raspberry Pi, a GOPIGO circuit, two motors, an ultrasonic sensor, and the programming skills they’ve learnt to control the car while integrating science and math concepts.
During this course students will be introduced to 3D printing and 3D modelling concepts. They will integrate different engineering concepts to bring their ideas to life and have the chance to work like design engineers. Students will be using Autodesk Fusion 360 as their modeling software where they will have to reverse engineer real life models, design their own prototypes, and work on big group projects which they will present.
Kodu is a software from Microsoft’s Labs, which empowers users to create their own games. These games could be run on Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. During this course, a child will build various games and will learn basics of programming. By the end of the course, the child will be able to build games with different complexities and to share the game with his friends.
App Inventor is an introductory course to developing Android Apps for 12+ year old students. It utilizes drag and drop programming blocks to develop Apps. Students will explore the basic technology that they use everyday. They will learn how to create their own Apps and download them onto their mobile devices or tablets.
