STEAM Education

STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. Using STEAM education results in students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!

STEAM topics:

  1. Robotics
  2. Basic electronic kit
  3. 3D Printing and 3D Designing
  4. 3D pen
  5. Arduino
  6. Scratch (coding)
  7. App inventor (coding)

Artificial Intelligence:

Introduction to Artificial Intelligence has always been a term that intrigues people all over the world. Various organizations have coined their own versions of defining Artificial Intelligence. Some of them are mentioned below

COURSE OVERVIEW:

AI is a discipline in computer science that focuses on developing intelligent machines, machines that can learn and then teach themselves. These machines, then, can process vast amounts of data than humans can, and several times faster. However, AI can go across all disciplines to change the world for the better– from creating new healthcare solutions to designing hospitals of the future, improving farming and our food supply, helping refugees acclimate to new environments, improving educational resources and access, and even cleaning our oceans, air, and water supply. The potential for humans to improve the world through AI is endless, as long as we know how to use it.

OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE:

In this course, the students will develop knowledge, skills, and values to understand AI and its implications for our society and the world and to use AI to solve authentic problems, now and in the future.

The students will engage with a host of multi-media online resources, as well as hands-on activities and a sequence of learning experiences.

The following are the main objections of the course:

  1. Develop informed citizens with an understanding of AI and the skills to think critically and

knowledgeably about the implications of AI for society and the world

  1. Develop engaged citizens with a rigorous understanding of how AI can be harnessed to improve life and the world we live in
  1. Stimulate interest and prepare students for further study to take up careers as AI scientists and developers to solve complex real-world problems

Glimpses of AI:

  • Python
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine learning
  • Deep learning
  • Neural networks
  • Data Analysis and Data Science
